I just got beyond the ribbing (which the pattern gladly only calls for 2 1/2" of).
It's taking a while to get used to the new rhythm but it's going much faster. And I haven't knitted the socks together making the switch.

Good luck.
I think starting is the hardest part (of course I haven't got to the heel yet ). Once you get it going it's pretty easy to see which strand goes where.

It's so wonderful to see and hear everyone's progress.

I have temporarily put the socks on hold. Right now I'm in the middle of a fair isle bag and 2 other gifts, but once those are done I will pick the socks back up again.

You guys are inspiring me to get back to the socks!

Haven't had a chance to cast on yet, but have bought the yarn and seen the pattern that I want to do. Its a pair of high socks from Garn studio http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/vi...=9&lang=enudio . I was wondering how you would go about doing K2tog when you knit sock this way?

This is the way I did it with my DK hat.
You have to slip the first side B stitch (or in this case sock B) onto another needle to rearrange your decreases BB AA instead of BA BA.

You could probably temporarily drop it but I feel safer using something to hold it.
I think the original link drops it after the decrease and picks it back up but I didn't look at that part too close.

Yeah my socks I'm doing now are just for practice... and it's good to know that Knitpicks Essential and Universal Yarn's Pace DO NOT knit up to the same gauge. lol After only like ten rows, the Pace socks is significantly shorter than the KP!
This is also my first short row heel. I think once I get the technique down I'm going to be a DK master :D
