- Done in Claudia's Handpainted Yarn
- 2 circ's, 2 at a time, on size 2 Addis.

Once I got the hang of it, I really enjoyed making these socks 2 at a time. It was pretty clumsy to start, but I got used to juggling the needles and balls of yarn. The yarn was really easy to work with, and it makes super soft socks. The pattern was from Sensational Knitted Socks (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1564775704/sr=8-1/qid=1146595679/ref=pd_bbs_1/002-4448660-4677609?%5Fencoding=UTF8). I :heart: this book lots. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in a sock-pattern book.

how did you learn to do 2 socks on 2 circs? I would like to do this as well. i was thinking I could use a center pull ball and knit off of one ball at a time!

A fantastic tutorial is right here (http://www.socknitters.com/2circs/index.htm) ;)

Good looking socks :thumbsup: I started 2 socks on 2 circs, but switched back to one, but I'm gonna have to give it another go bc I love to knit socks in tandem :thumbsup:

Thanks, everyone!
I used the same site that rebecca posted.
I used that tutorial as a template to make these socks based on the pattern I found in the Sensational Knitted Socks. It really wasn't that difficult. I had to frog about 3 times before I got the tension right, but after that, it went pretty quickly.

Those are pretty! I'd like to try that, but the smallest, longest circ I have is a 3.... :thinking:

hrm that tutorial looks good - I've started my one at a time on dpns socks at the moment though in Regia yarn. The two at once thing looks very tempting!

Very cool! Wasn't it fun to do both at once??? It takes longer but no 2nd sock syndrome :)
