Two Socks in One: A Class!

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.

This might be the absurdity that pushes me over the edge to taking a class.

Of course I will magic loop them!

Wow! Are these two SEPARATE socks, or are they connected?
Does this mean you can knit A PAIR of socks in ONE GO???

Once you get through those, maybe you could figure out these. You know, if you're bored or something.
