  1. If I remember correctly, during this episode you were discussing the types of needles to use when knitting socks. I have experimented with different types of needles and prefer magic loop. I like to knit my socks toe-up, well that is all I have tried, and I discovered it is not so easy to try the sock on my foot when knitting with the 9 inch needles. I think the needles are too short and there is not enough room for the stitches to stretch out on the needle as I was trying the sock on. I may just use the 9 inch needles for the cuff or at a point when I won't try the sock on. The needles took some getting used to, but I do find the sock goes along faster with the 9 inch needles.
