Blackrose for Me

Well I finally got started on my Blackrose socks. The yarn and new Harmony needles arrived late last week from Knit Picks. I chose the Stroll Tonal in 'Gypsy'. It's a beautiful red!

I haven't done magic loop for a couple of years now so I was afraid I'd forget how to to it. So far so good. After I got the ten rows of ribbing done it seemed to be going great, no laddering, yay!

I can see how they go quickly!


  1. Yay!!!

    That is a beautiful pattern and the red is perfect for a sock with "rose" in the name.

  2. I think it's funny that these are your first pair of socks to knit and that you know how to do the magic loop. Bet you'll be making two socks at once in no time. ( I would love to learn how to do the loop, I think I need lessons for that though)
