After almost a year has passed since I last worked on these socks I have finally picked them back up! I just turned the heel and am working on the foot. Hoping to get them done by the end of the month.



Mike - are you still knitting socks this way? I was thinking about how one would go about using this method trying to cable. The only way i can think of doing it is by taking the stitches off the needles all together for the cable section and separating the 2 and then cabling and then putting them back on after twisting.. I cable without using a cable needle, but I'm not sure if that makes any difference.

Hi there...I just checked out this blog about 2 socks at a time...then realized you are posting from San Fran...Can I ask you a question, please? We are planning a trip to San Fran in June...I was in the area a few years back and stayed with relatives in the Marin County area (Novato)..This year it's gonna be me and DH and niece..We want to get an apartment to rent (or hotel) near San Rafael..that puts a close to all the family...Should we look into San Fran or outside of SF? We are checking online, nothing is jumping out at us except Salsilito..Thanks for any input

I just re-looked at that. It now boggles my mind.

i knit English method for years, until my dd persuaded me to try Continental and it does take concentration and practice. am glad to be able to do both, in case my fingers get weary knitting for awhile using one method, can just switch to the other and rest the weary fingers. linknit41
