Miette: in progress

So close to finishing my Miette. Normally I lag a bit knitting up the second arm on a garment, but I have developed a serious thing for the Magic Loop method and am whizzing through my second sleeve using it. For those who mightn't know what that is, it's a way of knitting a smaller circumference in the round with a long cable needle, rather than using double pointed needles. Now that I am Lord and Master of the Magic loop, I just want to knit everything with this method!

Sure, I'll be stuck knitting nothing but sleeves, socks and door snakes, but dudes! It'll be GROUSE!

  1. It Is gorgeous! I have only ever used the magic loop method / circular needles for socks and DPN's scare me! I am knitting my 3 rd cardigan on circulars and love it!

  4. So that's why all the bicycle parking hoops have knitting on them, people getting carried away with their magic loops, huh.
    I can't knit and it sounds like really bad breakfast cereal to me!
