Two For One
Yesterday I cast on for my first-ever "2-at-a-time" socks...from the book by Melissa Morgan-Oakes. A dear friend gave me the book for my birthday, and I finally mustered up the courage to actually try the method. After an hour or so of confusion and weirdness, I was able to sort out what was going on, and I have to say that I'm really enjoying the project now. Yes, it seems slow, but whenever I catch myself wanting to write down how many rows I did for the ribbing or the leg, I realize that I don't have to, because I'm doing the second sock simultaneously. That's a very pleasant feeling, indeed. I'm approximately 25% of the way through. Cool.
