i think i have done the impossible


currently in my knitting bag i have a sock. so that's not earth-shattering news. but i'm knitting the sock toe up. again, we've been there and done that. but i've knitted the sock without using a provisional cast on, so the toe is enclosed. i know, pretty nifty, eh? okay, now i can pull the rabbit out of the hat....

i cast on and i'm currently knitting this sock in the round ... on one circular needle!!!!!

ta-dah!!!!

and you can too, go to http://www.az.com/~andrade/knit/mloop.html

for the toe instructions, you got to go to http://boogaj.typepad.com/knitting/2003/01/figure_8_cast_o.html.

it's a little cumbersome casting on the circular needle, but it can be done. you could also just cast on double pointed needles and place them on circular needles when you are done.

i'm so thrilled, i've even thought about throwing away all my double pointed needles. (just for a minute)
