I have not managed to avoid the 'ladder problem' of Magic Loop knitting in this particular sock, so will pay attention to Major Knitter for sock number two. Must cast that one on tonight to avoid dreaded second sock syndrome - but I am curious to see how the second one will pool, so don't think that I am about to fall prey to SSS. And it is so comfortable! (note to self: why does it drive me mad when yarn pools in a scarf or other knitted garment, but just makes me smile on a sock?).
