Two Sock on Two Circs ~ using interchangables
I have the Boye set now and am wondering about using it for doing 2 socks on 2 circs. My question is this: Can I use a size 3 tip on one end and a size 2 tip on the other end of each circular?? I'm thinking I'd probably have to do a 2 on the 'top' of one needle, a 3 on the 'bottom' of the same needle, then the opposite on the other one (2 on 'bottom' and 3 on 'top')????

I've never done 2 socks on 2 circs so excuse me if I'm totally out to lunch with my logic!

I'm going to have to say no...but I've not yet done it! I've read over this and have it printed for the tutorial that I will follow when I do start the process. She indicates in this tutorial that you should use 2 circs of the same size. But..nowhere does it say that we can't give anything a try, right?! So, if you want, just go for it!!! The worst thing that can happen is that it doesn't work...you will only know if u try

Ooooooooh, check this out !!! I think this is what I was trying to describe. I'm gonna give it a try!!

(Of course now, being at the point of having THREE incomplete pairs of socks, I won't be doing two socks at a time until I finish the three mates of these lonely socks first.... )
