|I have a toe! |
The project I'm doing is the Mojo Sock Recipe.
http://someknitreq.com/patterns/mojo/ Lost your Mojo? Find it with these socks. They are funky and free!
This is also my first time learning how to knit from the toe up, instead of the cuff down. To say I spent 6 hours, and over a hundred attempts at the cast-on, would not be an exaggeration. Purposeful Practice was the mantra I kept repeating. My breakthrough came when I thought maybe going straight to Judy Becker, the inventor of the very clever Magic cast-on, might be the smarter thing to do! So, I would suggest the same to you, instead of trying to figure it out with the instructions in the Mojo Sock Recipe. http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring06/FEATmagiccaston.html
