Last Spring I started a pair of navy wool socks for my husband. After finishing one, I thought....hummmm....it's getting warmer and he won't really need this 'til Fall. I have gone on to knit all sorts of things since then. This morning I noticed he grabbed a pair of wool socks to put on. After he left I decided I'd better dig out that navy yarn and get #2 sock done. He's bound to wear navy slacks soon and has every color but that.

A friend suggested if I didn't want to do the two circular method that I should try two sets of DP's. Knit the cuff of then the cuff of the other and so forth....then they almost finish at the same time.

This is a great solution - it works great for me because I have a horrible time finishing PAIRS of socks. :doh: It even seems to make the process go faster.
