Ooh, those look lovely!

I haven't tried toe-up yet or two at a time--it's next on my list...behind about 40 other things. :rollseyes:

Very cool project ! I did 2 socks on 2 circulars that are cuff down. I'd love to try the toe up method....no kitchner stitch to do, right?

I also love having both done at the same time!!

That's right Lynn. No Kitchener! (Even though I am one of those weirdos who actually LIKE to do Kitcherer!) If you have already done 2 socks on 2 circulars, it would be easy for you to do this.

Angelia, I hear you... I had been wanting to try this for a long time. There are still things I want to learn/try, but since I have taken up spinning and dyeing, too, there is just not enough time to do everything I want to do.

Kelly, the yarn is Jawoll sock yarn.

Thank you everyone for all the nice things you have said about my socks.

I like Kitchener, too! There's something so wonderfully magical about it! And after the first couple of times, it's not hard at all! (It's getting through those first couple of times that's the tricky bit )

No, they aren't mine- as much as I wish they were!! They belong to my cousin, who lives in Oregon. I should be getting a box sometime soon with llama fleeces from her!

I haven't tried that method yet. Haven't been brave enough to attempt socks at all yet (soon...soon). But, they look fabulous!!
