Using two sets of dpns is just having both socks started at the same time but you still only work on one sock at a time. So you'd do the cuff of one, put it down and take your other set and a new ball of yarn and do the cuff of the second. Then do the leg of one, put it down and do the leg of the other, etc.
when I used one BIG circ to make the legs of a doll I made, or the 2 sleeves of a Shrug I knit one row of one, then the same row in the other one
then back to the next row of the first, etc. etc.
kept me HUMBLE let me tell you
felt frustratingly SLOW at the time
but in retrospect it mist have been faster than normal
Make this world a Better, and more beautiful place, that you have been in it
Good judgement comes from experience
but Experience comes from Bad Judgment ecb
I've used circular needles and dps. for various projects, but can't quite imagine how doing two things on one circ. works. Do you join the ends or do you need to seam them together when done? Does sound a bit tedious, but when you're done, you're done. I guess there's always a new way to do things. Thanks for your replies.
There is no right way to knit; there is no wrong way to knit. So if anybody kindly tells you that what you are doing is "wrong," don't take umbrage; they mean well. Smile submissively, and listen, keeping your disagreement on an entirely mental level. They may be right, in this particular case, and even if not, they may drop off pieces of information which will come in very handy if you file them away carefully in your brain for future reference. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman
