Dirty monkeys are back!

The dirty monkeys are growing! They aren't really dirty,...you know what I mean. Well here they are... they are even showing you their "tail"!

This is only have a repeat. So still a long way to go. Is anyone else getting ladders in the purl stitches? I think I'm going to have to change to circs.

*Edit*- I learned how to knit magic loop from here. Hubbie bought me a book, but the video is so much better. I'm a visual learner here people.

So far mine went well. I only know how to knit socks on 2 circulars (didn't learn using dpns) so not sure. I don't see ladders on mine.

I have made two sets of these so far, have 3 and 4 OTN and I mean DPN, I haven't any ladders at all. I envy those who can knit socks on circs, though I move right along on DPNs but I am going to learn over the summer.

The best thing to go to avoid ladders is to knit/purl the first stitch on the next needle, then after you place the needle into the next loop to make the next stitch pull the yarn a little tighter than you usually would. This practically elimiates ladders.
