Love the colors of your sock ! Aren't socks addictive. I too work mine simultaneously so that I cannot get second sock syndrome.

Very nice! Like you I just finished my first pair of socks, and like you I ended up with the very same ridge! I could not figure out for the life of me what I did wrong (it couldn't be the two (or three) glasses of wine I enjoyed while I knitted could it? :-) I figured I added to the wrong side of the sock first. Can anyone confirm what would cause this problem? I figured my first pair should be imperfect and I'm wearing them as they are. I'm getting ready to start my second pair and want to tackle the "2 at a time" method.

Nice job on the sock! I got a little hole on one side of each sock that I made too. I once read a tip on how to avoid doing that, but now I can't remember what it was.

That sock looks very nice--congrats! For those occasional little holes (at least the unintended ones) that you only discover after the fact, don't be afraid to take a tapestry needle to the wrong side and fix it. It often takes just one small whip stitch to cover over the hole.

To avoid SSS, I explored the magic loop, 2-at-a-time method but found it confusing and unpleasant. It never occurred to me to make 2 at a time on entirely separate needles! Wonderful idea!
