Socks on two circulars using worsted weight

When I’m not working at Knit Happens, I’ve been busily knitting up samples for the Winter Class Schedule. The socks on two circular needles are knit using Cat Bordhi’s book, Socks Soar on Two Circular Needles. This book taught me how to knit socks and I’ve been enjoying making pair after pair ever since. You can easily use a longer cable needle for the Magic Loop method, if you prefer.

Granny Squares are probably the first thing I learned to crochet at age 14. My grandmother taught me and I’m so glad she did. I have been crocheting blankets and giving them away all my life. When I worked as a telephone operator, we could crochet while we worked and honestly, it was the only way to keep away the boredom. I am looking forward to sharing this traditional, simple, and fun pattern in my Learn to Crochet Granny Squares class. So many different looks can be created using Granny Squares and once you get the basics down, there are numerous variations on this pattern, as well. A world of creativity awaits!
