Magic Loop Socks

I started my next pair of socks today using the magic loop method. I have only done 4.5 rows on sock #1, but so far everything is going real well. I am using the Addi Turbo needles in size 1 (really 1.5) with a length listed at 47 inches. I am knitting the Socks That Rock yarn that I got from the Michigan Fiber Arts Festival last year. The pattern I am using is from the book, "More Sensational Knitted Socks" by Charlene Schurch. It is a Cross-Hatch Lace sock. I'll post pictures tomorrow, as I am at work today.

PS: I delivered the RPM Socks yesterday to McKelle. And I got to see the progress they are making on their house. Her and her husband, Eric, have been building their own home for the last year to year and a half. With a lot of help from her Dad, Mom & Brother. I am amazed at the progress they have made. All the painting is done. The hardwood floors are down in the kitchen and the cabinets are hung. The counters will be delivered soon. Her cousin was supposed to be there today to lay down the flooring in the master bathroom and he will install the carpeting when it all arives. The master bathroom has this tub, that I just drool over. It fits in the corner, and is about the size of a small jacuzzi. Awesome. I just love the house. It has this wonderful wrap-around deck/porch. Eric even installed speakers into the roof of the porch, so you can have music outside. It is a really cool house. I know she is chomping at the bit to get into. But I'm sure they'll be in sooner than she thinks. I'm thinking early spring.
