Queen Kahuna Sock Method, Anyone? Now FO!!!
I was wondering if anyone besides me is working on or has tried knitting socks per the Queen Kahuna 2 toe up socks on 2 circulars method? Here is my progress so far. (Yes, there are heels, but am I too shy to show them yet!)

I've been shying away from socks, because I like to do anything that there has to be two the same,
at the same time.

I haven't tried doing one thing on two circulars yet. But I'm getting tempted.

Wow, your socks look GREAT!

I haven't tried it yet, but I would want to do it this way too-then I'd never have to face the dreaded "sss" lol!

Well, you definitely could make them match with this method. Exactly!! I can't wait to try a striped pair :rofling:

And thank you very much, Hilary! Those are my favorite colors. Funny, I had SSS with my first couple of pair of socks, then promptly got over it, since I totally love wearing hand knitted socks.

Love those colors! What yarn is that or did you dye it yourself?

I saw that book the other day and was definitely curious! I want to try a "regular" sock first before tackling two at the same time though, especially getting down the heel portion.

Carolyn, your socks look great!! I have knitted socks on circs, but one at a time, and not toe-up. I like the idea of having both socks done at the same time!!

The yarn is Jawoll Sock Yarn. I "think" I bought it in Tallahassee, Florida. Not all that many stores carry it, but it is nice yarn, especially after it is washed and softens up some.

Oh, thank you so much, Margie. I am loving the fact that I can just knit and knit until I actually run out of yarn and don't have to skimp on the cuff length! The book contains a whole lot of "reading", but it is very intuitive and if you have knit socks before, you can skim parts of it. AND for anyone who has NOT knitted socks before, it is still really easy to "get it" - she does a marvelous job explaining the technique.

And BTW, love the llamas in you avatar, Margie! Are they yours?
