AMY! 2 circ question
I set up my Boye's so that I could do a sock on two circs and it worked great until I got to the heel. Then my needles got all mixed up (having the correct size on the wrong side). Is there anything specific I have to do differently? Anything I need to watch out for when I get to making the heel flap and turning it?

I can't get over how much faster they work up on 2 circs, so any tips would be appreciated.

WOOHOO! I did it! I made it past the heel and am happily knitting away on the foot. I *am* going to make this easier for myself though. Wright sells replacement parts for the Boye set. I can get an extra set of the size 2, 3, and 4 needles for only $4 a pair.
