What are you most proud of? This is the first decent pair of socks I have made....ever! I've tried so many patterns, I can't tell you.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Now, about the pattern. Don't ask me why it took so long to get it out as I've had it for quite sometime! It belongs to Susan B. Anderson. I adore her and have all her books. She has this easy way about her. You'd want her as a sister, neighbor or best friend. If you watch her teaching, she is relaxing and mesmerizing at the same time. Patient and thoughtful in her delivery. Her patterns are the same way. Technically, beautifully written, but with that element that she is speaking to you from the page. In this pattern, she makes it so easy to understand the dreaded turning of the heel!

can your sock patterns be adjusted for magic loop ???? PLEASE say yes, I don't like the "chop sticks" LOL, they go every which way!!!!!!!! I need to make socks, a pair that fits :-)

I'm afraid I won't be able to help as this is not one of my patterns. You might try YouTube....type in "knit socks on magic loop". Good luck!
