2 sock at a time on magic loop HELP!
I am teaching myself to knit 2 socks at a time on the magic loop using the book "2 socks at a time".

I get the concept of how the rounds go, but I can't figure out how to join the rounds.

Has anyone successfully used this technique, and if so could you describe what you did?

As you knit the row on the 'front' needle, the yarn will be coming from the 'back' needle. This will join the two.

Watch the video on this site- that's the only way I could really figure it out. Go to "advanced knitting techniques" and scroll down to "small diameter circular knitting".
