3 Onsies down….

And 3 onsies to go! lol Socks that is. I am really loving knitting socks but it’s that S.S.S I’m suffering from that is getting to me. What do I do? Knit a new sock! Now to go back and knit the other ones so I’ll actually have matching pairs…… If only I could get this 2 at a time method down, I’d have it made. Trust me I’ve tried 10 ways to sunday and it still gets messed up, twisted and backwards. No one I know locally knows how to do this, so for now, it’s DPN’s and 1 at a time. Although I keep saying to myself, ” You knitted the 2nd sock now co for the 1st one.” Solves that dreaded S.S.S …………. NOT

  1. Get yourself another set of dpn needles in the same size and brand as the first. Then, you can work two socks at once – one on each set. You can work one row on each sock (great for repeating patterns while they are fresh in your mind) or do a few rows on one, then a few on the other…

    Not quite as efficient as two at once, but next best thing!!

    • Didn’t think of that, although on the Hug Me socks, I used a Crystal Palace sz 1 with no mm size on it, so have no idea what others I can use to match it. I can with the other 2 though. Thanks for that tip!

  2. You could wear unmatched socks and call them a pair. Seriously though, I do the thing with 2 sets of dpns. It works really well. You actually only need 7 needles if you work off sets of 4.

    • I tried 3 per sock and the front was too much for me, so I use 4 per sock, but now that I’m gathering 2 sets of DPN’s, I’ll try this out. Not sure why I never thought of it before.. Must have been a major brain cramp lol Thanks! 🙂
