2 Socks at teh same time??
ok, so , I really like making socks...my problem is, once I make one, I lose interest and motivation to make another one! i know there s a way to do 2 socks at one time, so i was wondering if anyoen could suggest a book? or a tutorial somewhere? I am not afraid of learning some new technique like knitting socks on 2 circs...which i think is how one would go about doing 2 socks at once.

anyone?

I know exactly what you mean! I just started a sock today--I finished its partner five months ago!

Here is the best place to learn how to do two socks at once: http://www.cometosilver.com/socks/2mlsocks_start.htm

Good luck!

I use the 2 circs method.. I prefer it to DPN's for socks.. :D Cat Bhordi has a book out on it... But I did a class at my LYS.

I usually like to make my socks on DPN but wanted something fast.

I get 2 sets of DPNs and do both socks section by section at the same time.
