Yellow Eyelet Socks From Start to Finish

Hello again!
Just finished the yellow socks. Took pictures along the way, to show how I did the "Magic Loop" method for two at once, toe-up socks. I didn't really read one specific method or technique from one particular sock artist (designer), but instead incorporated the way I learned to do socks with things I saw in pictures online for the one needle "magic loop" method. Since I have been working with round needles for many decades, the whole thing made sense, quickly.

Unfortunately, my circular needles' center flexible nylon piece isn't as long as I read online they should be, but it still worked well and without a lot of problems. My needles are not the best quality on the market, so my stitches were hung up a lot on the crimped spots, but overall I really liked this method for doing socks.

At the toe, I started the knitting with a piece of junk yarn chained. From that, I picked up the lumps (24 for 24 stitches) and away I went! Shamefully, I didn't take a picture of that step... I'll be sure to show that someday.
