I’ve started the Absinthe socks from Knitty. I’m making them out of a beautiful BFL sock yarn called Maple Leaf that my dear friend Karen gifted me.

Maple Leaf

I’m making them two at a time with magic loop. This is my first go with magic loop but I really like it. Karen sent me then link to a youtube video of Cat Bhordi demonstrating the Judy’s Magic Cast On which made it so easy to pick up. I think this may be my new favorite toe up cast on. These socks are knitting up much faster than I had anticipated which makes me not want to stop.
