knit Mina's Two At A Time SOCKS technique SOCKS for Sebastian

Let the world know that there is an easier way, at least for me to knit socks. If you are a sufferer of a second yarn syndrome or just like me when you knit your mind wonders around and you forget what you are actually doing with needles I HIGHLY recommend this technique. By the way it is FOR FREE thanks to such talented knitter as Mina Philipp, check her knitting podcast.

I just need to write more about her as she is not only an amazing knitter, she is one of the fastest if not the fastest knitter that I have ever seen (unfortunately not met). If you listen to her you will fall in love and like I will not be able to miss any of her knitting episodes. I watch, listen to what she has done / knitted with an open mouth. My jaw just drops down without my knowledge. Yep, it is true.

Ok, so without further ado I need to say that I don't see myself knitting any other way from know on. I was converted from DPNs to circular needles and magic loop. Even though I still want to buy myself some DPNs that feeling is not as strong as it was. What has happened?!!!!

Therefore, Mina if you ever find me in the whole wild [ :) ] world I need to thank you for saving my mind for some stressful thought of making mistake in the second sock. When I think about it I think your pattern will change lives of many not only mine. Thank you so so so much for sharing it with us.
