What length of circs for socks on two circs?
I'm investing in some addis for another project and figured I'd kill two birds with one stone.

I'm not sure where to even get directions on how to knit socks on a circ. Please help.

There is a time to be born and a time to die. A time to laugh and a time to cry, but there never seems to be enough time to knit.-Anon. (or to visit KH!)

This one says 24 inch to do 2 socks on 2 circs. Now that I think of it, I want to try that too! LOL

I like the 24", mainly because of the length of the actual needle part and the cord part isn't too long.

I do my two-circ socks one at a time, and I think 16"s are perfect. But it would also make sense to use a 16" and a 24" -- you can use the needles for a greater variety of things that way. And some people say it's easier not to knit onto the wrong needle when they are two different sizes or colors. :D

If you want to save some money why don't you try a 32" or higher Addi and do magic loop instead of buying 2?
