Panda wool

This is the beginning of another Rushing Rivulet sock with Pandawool - a handwash, merino-bamboo blend. I really like how this feels. I'm finding it hard to wear my store-bought socks.

Dearest Mrs. Runcible,
I beg and beseech you----- what IS your schedule? Do you sleep? Are you an endless whirling dervish of crafty activity and domestic goddessry? Do you have live in help that allows you to produce such wonders that weary my very eyes??

Once again, I bow.

I am old, older than dust compared to your springtime fount of energy and enthusiasm for all things.

Please DO let me know which pattern!
I SO cannot get the hang of working with 4 needles!

I am knitting my first sock and although have come to an uneasy peace with the DPNs I would have much preferred to use my lovely userfriendly circular needles ... but then it seemed that the sock would be wide enough for an oversized giant ..... please please can you explain how you knit ordinary size socks on circular needles (are there special little ones?)

Ladies, there are a few books out there on knitting with two circulars. I use Cat Bordhi's "Socks Soar on Two Circular Needles" and her latest book, "New Pathways for Sock Knitters" for many beautiful patterns.

Thank you so much Mrs Lear. After an unpleasant accident removing my knitting from my handbag I NEED my circular needles!
