2-at-a-time socks

2-at-a-time socks

I've been eyeing my copy of "2 at a time Socks" by Melissa Morgan-Oakes for a while now, and finally cast on for a pair of yesterday. Despite the fact I'm knitting two socks at once (and thus they move along half as quickly) and that I've been busy this weekend, I'm making good progress. So far I'm managing to keep things fairly organized, and not get all tangled up between the two skeins of yarn. I'm scared about the heels, though.

I'm heading on a trip for work in a week, and debating whether this would be good travel knitting. It could be that this extra level of complexity means it is NOT good travel knitting, especially if i want to talk to my coworkers on the plane. but I'm loathe to cast on yet ANOTHER project, just to have something simpler to work on.

LOL I just bought that book too, and was going to cast on socks (my first socks ever!) starting in August. I am very intimidated by knitting socks.

That is a gorgeous colour - what pattern are you using?

Love your blog Wendy - and thank you so much for commenting on mine :-)
