FO

I finished the socks made 2-at-a-time, washed and blocked. This yarn is super nice for the price: Patons Kroy Jacquards. After their soak in Eucalan, they softened up quite a bit and will be a joy to wear. They came out so nice that I will put them away for a gift occasion, or if I want to gift myself! I deserve it, don't you think! It was so nice not suffering second sock syndrome with this method and finished both at once. I definitely will use this technique again. The real trick was to use a marker on sock # 1 as a landmark.

Those are sweet sox. And I like how the sock stretchers 'model' them. I had My Sister Knits order some to I could get my own pair. I would never have thought I needed to have a pair until you showed me what they could do!

Lovely socks! 2 at a time?!?! You are inspiring me to try it!

BTW -- thank you for the comments, I have added you to my favorites to read :)

Your socks look great! I tried this method but had a hard time keeping the yarn and needles untangled. Any tips?
