Hey Everyone, it's been awhile since I've been here. Been knitting purses, blankets and just a lot of other fun stuff. But now I've got a question. I saw a pattern sometime back that you could knit two socks at the same time. Does anyone know where that pattern might be located?
I hope everyone has had a great summer and that everyone is safe from Katrina. Thanks everyone for your help
I've been fine, just busy busy busy this summer. I see that Amy has really updated things, and it's WONDERFUL....
How have you been? I've been knitting with this great yarn from Joannes, it's Sensations and I'm knitting a great blanket for my niece for christmas. I want to try to make a bunch of socks for the nephews and my other nieces too. Plus matching hats of course.
I will be back as a regular. Thanks for saying hi!
I haven't been knitting socks for all that long but I do two socks at the same time. It is good because sometimes you just don't have the spirit to knit that second sock and you are left with an orphan!
Google 2 socks on 2 circular needles and you will be led to a website for socknitters. It has an online tutorial on how to do it and once you get the hang of it, you can probably convert any pattern to a circular needle pattern. They have lots of free patterns on their site.
Cat Bordhi's book Socks Soar on Two Circular Needles is also a good source.
You can also have two sets of double pointed needles and complete a specific amount of rows on one set and then go to the second set and do the same. You will always have exactly matching socks and I think that people actually do that but in my never humble opinion, that seems like a lot of work.
I prefer the 2 circular needles myself. Less fussy and it eliminates a lot of joins where you can have ladders.
