I knitted these socks with the help of the class Knit Lab: In the Round, as well as the free Craftsy article, Knitting in the Round Made Easy. I definitely need to work on tension, which is a common issue when learning the magic loop method. The first sock had serious ladders, whereas the second sock was much better. I used Serenity Sock Yarn, a washable wool blend, and Knitter's Pride Nova Platina interchangeable circular needles, size 2.5. The yarn was very nice to work with, although a challenge when learning the magic loop method because the needle cable caused it to stretch at beginning points of the loop. Being a perfectionist, it did bother me that I didn't get the stripes matched up perfectly (lol).
