I've never tried that method for socks before redbedhead. So far I've only done socks on dpns. I really want to try to learn how to do two socks at a time. I've just got to find a day where I'm actually feeling patient enough to try the cast on. Last time I just got frustrated with it and went back to my dpn method lol.
Psquidy, I know exactly what you mean!! People who don't knit, don't realize just how much time it takes to get these projects done, and that you actually have to find the time to do them. But at least we're making gifts that people will treasure(I'm hoping anyway).
This is my first year attempting to knit everyone Christmas gifts, so I'm kinda nervous about it. Before, I didn't know the purl stitch(sad, really) and wasn't confident enough in my knitting abilities. I'm also afraid that I won't have enough time to get everyone's gift done, and I'm hoping that people are pleased with what I make them.
Good luck to everyone with their Christmas knitting!!
