Switch to Two Socks
Socks: I like to knit idential items at the same time. Like sleeves. So I thought I would test drive the 'knit two socks on DPNs method. http://www.keyway.net/crafts/MagicSox1.htm I had already knit about three inches on the first sock. So I worked up the second sock to match.
I put both socks together onto the DPNs and started knitting from two balls of yarn. I haven't fully gotten the hang of it. Still reading through the directions. I'll figure it out sooner or later.
In any case. I cancelled the 5-needle order and instead I ordered a set of extra long circular needles and will be using the Magic Loop method. It would be easier to pick up and put down this project without loosing my pace. Both socks to be knit at the same time. http://www.az.com/~andrade/knit/mloop.html. I think I prefer the two socks on two circulars but these needles were on sale.
