Robyn's Socks

I started mine yesterday! :) Here is a pic in progress:

I was worried that it wouldn't fit over my super wide feet...but I think it's going to be fine. You can see more info about it on my blog: http://dailyjoy.net/knitblog. I'm using Knit Picks Essential in Pine and size 1 needles. I'm doing 2 socks at a time w/magic loop.

Are you knitting both socks on the same needle or going back and forth between socks?

I was going ot do 2 on 2 until I really thought about the fact that I am using both ends of a center pull ball....

Hi Dorothy! Yes, I am doing both socks at once on one needle. I have two skeins of the yarn so I use one for each sock. When I buy a hank of sock yarn, I wind them into two balls so I can do two at once. I'm one who gets bored easily and so I know myself to knwo I probably wouldnt' want to knit the same pattern twice. LOL

I wind my yarn into two equal balls by weight, but then I do one at a time. Then, esp. in a pattern that's new to me, the first one takes about 3 times as long as the second one! Once I figured out all the kinks on the first one, the second one just flies by!

Grin I should have wound this into two balls but lately I have not been thinking ahead well so I have one large ball of the pink
