I've had a few questions about the whole two-socks-in-one thingy....
it's not a double-thickness sock - it's two ENTIRELY SEPARATE socks knitted at the same time, on the same needles.
Yes, it's absurd.
Yes, it's likely a bit slower than knitting them separately.
Yes, you lose the magical no-purl benefits of working normally in the round.
Why? Because it's there.
It's the knitter's equivalent of Mount Everest.
And I'm teaching a class on it. Sunday April 18th, 1-3pm at The Purple Purl. Click here for more details.
For experienced and adventurous sock knitters only - ideally those with a well-developed sense of the absurd.
