Two Toe Up socks on One Circular Needle
I stumbled across a link posted by Shandeh showing a sock tutorial.

Good luck with your socks!


And decided to check it out. So, I'm looking through the 'one sock on dpns', then I check out the 'Two Toe Up on circular'.


So, magic loop & sock virgin is doing two socks at one time using one circular needle!


hehehe..... suffice it to say, I'm almost finished, and I found it quite easy (well, to be honest, the figure 8 cast on was a little on the 'medium hard' side), but overall, I think I can do socks!


the figure 8 cast on is done! (whew)



omg, they actually look like toes! hehehe



now, if I can just figure out her cast off method, I'll be finished!

Wow, those are great looking socks! You've encouraged me to try 2-at-a-time.

Great job!! I'm so glad you just jumped in with both feet and knitted them two at a time!! They look great too...

I've made one pair that way but then went back to my one at a time

I'm working on a pair from the same tutorial, also 2 at a time, toe up-I haven't yet finished, but its FUN! Plus it'll be great to have them *both* done when I finish!

Your socks look really good, and seem to be a perfect fit! well done!

Silver's tutorial made it really easy! Her instructions were written out in great detail with tons of images!

I think I'll do another 1" - 1 1/2" then cast off.

I havent tried the toe up version of socks yet. I am inspired by your pics that I think I have to try this next. You did a wonderful job and they look great. I do love your color selection as well.
