2 in 1 socks on dpns; one inside the other socks on dpns; two at once socks on dpns - 1 of 5

Ha! ha! I knew about something and Jan didn't! neener neener. I feel so grown up today.

Someone mentioned this in a thread some time back...months? a year? I came across this video on youtube. I have to watch it now. Curiosity can be such a time suck, but when you're near comatose like I am today, it's cheap entertainment.

ETA: I've watched the 1st video. I'm thinking it looks very awkward. Why not knit with 1 ball of yarn, slipping the 2nd sock's stitches, then go round again and knit the 2nd sock....hopefully with the correct yarn. I think this is something I might try one day just to say I did it. It looks way too easy to mess up. If I did it, I would do different color socks and then knit the mates. I think.

Cheating is an option. . . . Cheaters never win and winners never cheat, but smart knitters who want to retain an iota of sanity do, cheerfully. ~~Kory Stamper
