Seduce: to win over; attract

Yarn seduces me with her siren call. "Pick me! Pick me!" I am hopelessly enchanted by yarn and am delighted by the endless choices.

Orange Lizzy

You knew when you saw the orange yarn a sock would be started. You knew I couldn't resist. The yarn called to me and since I have no orange socks, well... they have to be made.

Yarn: Cascade Heritage Sock
Needles: Hiya Hiya 9" circular, US2
Pattern: Lizzy by Stephanie Van Der Linden (Rav link)

They're looking good! I've never knit a sock with small circulars. I bought a 9" circular to try but still haven't done it. Is it your prefered method of sock knitting?

I have a couple pair of the short circs, not sure how to go about using them yet, those look great btw.

I like using the 9" circular for socks, especially if there are cables involoved. I hate having to do purl sts between the dpns. I've made quite a few pairs of socks with the tiny circular. I've tried magic loop and don't like it (I end up having huge ladders). I still use dpns for the heel and toe when using the 9" circular.

Wow! Love that Orange and the pattern! I too really like the 9" circulars...when I knit socks...whenever that is or will be...who knows! Not anytime soon! Love your new Header!

Pretty color. Never tried a sock on one circ. Is it tight to knit that way? That's a pretty pattern, too. The color and pattern mix nicely.

Oooo, pretty! And just think how much use you'll get from them when the Bobcats' football season starts (angry orange you know);-).

I love it!!! I wish I could knit more socks, I tend to have no problems starting them, but finishing them, well there is the problem:)
