Hiya Hiya Sock it to me.

My newest discovery: Knitting socks on a 9" circular needle. It has opened a whole new world. I usually knit socks on 5 double pointed needles and have been satisfied with this method. Well during the SeaSock Cruise to Alaska a lady named Angela was knitting on these tiny little needles and her progress was remarkable.

I thought I would give it a try, it takes a bit of getting used to but the speed you pick up is amazing. I am a convert from now on it's 9" circular for me. Socks knitted from some of my yarn stash from Alaska.

I just got some 9" needles yesterday for socks. I'm not a sock novice but I've been knitting for about 2 hours with the new needles. I know I'm better at it than I wan an hour ago but I'm not in love with it yet. Guess I should give it more time?

What did you use for a pattern? How does the heel/toe thing work on mini circs?
