I've never been intimidated by socks, or dpns, and I have knit booties. I just know that I'll make one sock. I won't want to put in the effort for socks when they go into shoes and under pants legs. I know some people wear them with sandals, but me? No, I don't think I could get away with it.

that's why you should definitely start by learning magic loop with 2 socks at once. I can reate...I have one sock finished right now that has been alone for about 2 months!

that's what I want to learn to do... I honestly believe and know that when I am done with one sock I will cast it aside lol.. I am doing a pair of slippers right now and I am already thinking that when the first one is done (should be by today ) I am not going to want to cast on for the second lol.. I am gong to make myself though.
So I figure when I start my socks I have to do them both at once.

This is why when I have to knit sleeves flat I always do them both at once. Before the body of the sweater if I can, too. I figure that once the sleeves are done, there's now way I won't do the body! However, I have a couple of sleeveless bodies awaiting my attention! :rollseyes: They need to be knit on the sweater, and it's too hot, so I do have a good excuse.
