Experiment

In an attempt to speed up my knitting (there are 4 more pairs of socks to be completed before the austral winter starts) I thought I try out knitting two socks at once on two circular needles. Instructions how to do this are abound on the web (see here, here or here), and there are even books dedicated on how to do this… .

Being a bit cautious, and not sure I’d get the beginning right, I cast on each sock the traditional way – on a set of double-pointed needles, and then, after the first round of knitting, transferred them to the two circular needles. Knitting the cuff was easy (I eventually need to get past the k2 p2 rib pattern, but everytime I pick up my needles to knit socks, my hands do this automatically), when I got to the heels, I knitted each separately because it was much easier and quicker than to figure how to do it. So, within two evenings, I completed two socks up to the heel (but admittedly, with a short cuff), let’s see how long it will take me to complete the pair.
