Magic Loop Ankle Socks

I am taking an online ML socks class from KnittinMitchie and decided to play around with ML knitting. Truth be told, I didn't want to be the one student in the class who couldn't 'get' it. So after 5 unsuccessful tries and an unraveled and knotted skein (DD was left alone in living room with said skein when it magically became unraveled and knotted up. The culprit was apparently stealth because she had no idea how or what had happened to my yarn. Imagine.), I decided to try, try again this morning. Here is the first 24 rounds (cuff). Beyond that, I cannot do it without the class and the help of Guru KnittinMitchie. I am using Knit One Crochet Too's Wick yarn in the soft petal colorway. I love knitting with this yarn!! I have read that the color pools on this yarn and I think I can see that it will - but I'm kinda diggin the fun colors. Now, I am a sock virgin as well as an any-shape-other-than-rectangles virgin, but I can tell you that I am in love with ML knitting. Once I got the hang of it, it was so much more easy and less cumbersome than I had first thought.

I used a couple of video tutorials (KH and the Knit Witch )on ML since I can't read instructions and just do it. (I'm totally too kinestic for that.) I know these pics are upside down - but I couldn't find my camera (packed away) and used my cellphone to shoot these. I should've turned the work the correct way while shooting, but you get the idea. (This is a cuff down sock.)

Here you can get an idea of the yarn. (Now in a ball after unraveling incident.) And of course, my beloved Addi Turbos are pictured! This is the first time I've ever really knit with them and I LOVE them! I still love my Denise Interchangeables, but the Addis are so light weight and smooth to knit with. If only I could afford a complete set in every cable length. Maybe I'll sell some plasma. ;P
