Two at a Time
What the bejezus is this mess? Am I just stupid? Do you people have this book? Can you knit two socks at one time? Because I can't. Just can't. Like, whipped the needles and yarn across the room can't. And I'm totally bummed because that book cost a lot of money! And so did the stupid 47 inch Addi Lace Needle that I had to buy to knit two socks on and that I will never use for anything else.
I tried for four hours at least to make a go of it. I even knit just the one sock at a time with the magic loop method. Which I could do, but seriously, all the pushing around stitches and pulling out cables just took too long to make it worthwhile. But when I would try for two at a time, I just ended up with twisted skeins of yarn, cables everywhere, and somehow I kept losing the little loop of cable you are supposed to have between the stitches on each sock.
I really want to learn how to do this. I don't want to give up. If any of you out there have mastered this technique and have any advice for me, please throw it over here. I need help! : )
