I am doing them each on two needles. I like doing them this way best and doing both at once... no SSS!

Thanks to everyone!

they are all gorgeous! I kinda like the "fraternal" socks, they're more unique

I love the color your using on the hat, and the scarf too!

Beautiful - all of them!! Ditto on the gorgeous rich color of the hat ... love the differences in the socks too. So, how do you do both of them at the same time on different needles? Just switch back and forth? Do you do a certain number of rows on one and then pick the other one up, or do you do a section at a time? Sorry for the questions, I just want to gather all the information I can before starting my first pair.

Everything looks great! You have wonderful taste in yarn. Those socks are going to be beautiful, and I love the color of the hat! Very nice work.

I use the two circular needle method which requires two sets of circs. I bought 4 size one needles so each sock is on it's own two sets. I have each one in it's own ziploc just so I don't get them all tangled in my bag and which one I'm knitting on depends on which one I grab first mostly. If I were only grabbing one all the time I'd probably switch them out to give them equal time.

BTW - There are 3 methods for knitting small diameter items like socks: Magic Loop which uses one long circular, DPNs, and two circular needles. There are videos of all three methods in the KH video section.
