@Jinx_HH I dunno. It's nice to have a wider range of patterns available but I don't think it's going to stop me making top-down socks as well
@RexMagenta Yeah, always fiddly to start. The Turkish CO is somewhat less fiddly to work than Judy's, though. Just my opinion, of course 😉
@LaVisch I'll maybe look into that as an option for future socks, but regardless of the cast on I think I'm going to find it fiddly for the first few rows, until there's enough sock to get some space between the needles. Maybe if I worked magic loop it would be easier
@MmedeBeauvoir I normally go more for blues and purples, but something about this one just spoke to me
@dani I know what you mean. There's so much shaping involved it seems like it should be much more complicated than it actually is to make a sock
