That has always been my preferred method as well. I don't know why it's any more a pain in the butt than any other method though.

I've tried the two at a time on magic loop. Ugh! Wasn't a fan of constant untangling either. Will try again though - I've heard it's so much nicer once you get a system down. I've only done a couple pair of socks, but did them on separate needles. Worked a section on one, then a section on the other one so they'd be done about the same time. I have one going now (that I haven't picked up in ages) on a Zauberball - the instructions on that ball specifically says to only work one at a time.

OHHHH! You mean two socks at the same time on the same two circular needles don't you? I read it as just knitting two socks on two separate sets of circulars. That's the way I do it. Two at once does sound like a pain to me although some people do like it.

Once I tried (unsuccessfully) two socks on two circular needles.

I like to work all things that come in pairs (sleeves, cardi fronts, mittens, booties) on the same needle.
