I completed my first pair of real socks last night, I did them 2 at a time toe up using Knit Picks pattern. I only did them ankle length as I used 2 half balls of Lion Wool, and I did them on a 40" size US4 circular needle. Obvious errors including one line of twisted stitches where I had used the wrong working yarn and had to go back, and my bind off is always tight so I tried MI in between each bid off, and now realize I should have increased a row, knit one round and then bind off. But oh well they work and I already started my next pair since these took me less than a week!

ive used the 2 at a time with fingerless gloves but found the knit picks pattern tutorial on the 2 socks at once confusing. so i went with the video i seen on you tube from expertvillage.

the socks look great though!!

My knitting buddy at the salon next door is knitting socks two at a time, and it seems WAY easier than the other way. also, I think one would be less apt to finish one and not the other, which is my problem with things in pairs. I'm going to try Lion's thigh high leg warmers like that. Great Job!!
