Ask the Geeky Girls -
Sylvia (sylvia1002) from Massachusetts asks:
My question is for Dami … you may have already answered this at some point, but if you did, I missed it. Dami, your mamma loves 9” circs for her sock knitting. What is your preferred method for knitting socks? It seems when you are working on socks these days, they are test patterns and/or samples and we don’t get to see them. :)
