For my special Valentines Exchange buddy - Amanda!

Okay, I wanted to pass along some of my favorite links for sock knitting to my special Valentines Exchange pal Amanda!

I know you like earth tones but I couldn't resists trying to find a little Valentines Day sparkle to your earth tones so I sent you some Fortissima Colori Disco! I gave you the long #1 needle so that somewhere down the line you can get a chance to try some magic loop knitting. I have completely converted myself to knitting on two circulars and when I bought your needle I got one for myself to try magic loop knitting as well.

This first tip is great for any time you need a provisional cast on, I now use it all the time when I knit socks from the toe up. Click on the image to start the movie.
