The Magic Loop allows you to knit your socks 2-at-a-time in the round so you don't have the second sock syndrome. In other words you finish both socks at the same time and they will match!
Also, this method allow you to use one circular needle to make very small and very large items all on the same needle. You can complete much more quickly with this method once you learn it compared to using double pointed needles.
Many of us knit garments and accessories, but not home decor pieces. Kelley is working on her Cable Channel Knit-Along project, which is a pillow cover, and it got me thinking about all of the cool projects you can knit to bring your love of fiber into your home. Get your knit decor on with six of my favorite patterns from Alpaca Direct!
Kelley shows you how to knit the Left Twist. This is a nice complementary stitch to regular cabling, plus you can add these twists without the extra work of using a cable needle. This stitch looks good as a border on the edge of regular cables.
