Well ain't that purty! Get that other sock done quick before you develop SSS!

No wonder it's taking me so long to do my first sock on 2s, 1s would drive me batty!

Kelly those socks are great. I am even impressed that you shaved your legs for us too. I really like that yarn.

I didnt shave my legs...not since Saturday!

WOW...what WONDERFUL compliments!

Vick....this is one of those BIG get two socks out of one skein.

Jouf...I think it takes longer because I had to work slower and more carefully on those teeny tiny needles!

Joyce...I followed the pattern that I linked to above. I searched for one that was EXTRA simple. Silver's sock tutorial is EXCELLENT, but the two times I tried to use it, the sock was coming out too BIG for my feet....I had to find one with fewer CO sts.

Now I want to find a good DK wt self-striping sock yarn!

Nice sock, Kel! Is this the sock you were knitting on 2 circs when you and Hilde had your first get-together? Since I've yet to complete a pair of socks, I was considering some wall art that is all single socks !! Isn't the thought of starting over on the second sock daunting?!

Fabulous , but I can't wrap my head around the idea of size 1 needles!

I recently tried 2 socks on 2 circulars and enjoyed it a whole lot more than using DPNs. The main advantage to me was that both socks are knitted at the SAME time! No worries about ending up with a mis-matched pair of socks and when you're finished, you're FINISHED.

When I made a pair using DPNS, I didn't enjoy the 2nd sock as much as the first since I felt very "been there, done that" about it.
