2 Socks on 2 Circulars Show and Tell!


I thought I'd just share a few pictures
I took of socks worked on in my "2 Socks on 2 Circulars"class.
The last class went very well. In fact 2 women came who had never even knit socks before! I was so impressed by their perseverance and sock knitting bravery!
Since everyone just made sample socks to learn the technique I didn't make anyone swatch. That is why the socks differ so much in size.
See readers!!!
This is proof why you always need to swatch for sweaters!
If this class proves to be too advanced for the student it's easy to just switch to learning one sock at a time.
Great job everyone!

2 Socks on 2 Circulars

I taught my first "2 socks on 2 circular needles" class today!




For the most part it was a success. It's a challenging technique to learn, and I felt all of the students hung in there even when things got tricky. I think that the hardest part about this is keeping everything untangled. At first it feels so awkward with the two balls of yarn and 4 needle points. It does get easier though. I told the class that I taught a friend this technique and at first she had trouble. But a week or two later she had 3 pairs of child's socks completed. So just like anything with knitting, if you stick with it, it will get easier and easier.

I recommend this class for anyone who is just plain old sick and tired of knitting that second sock. It's also great for those who want to expand their knitting knowledge and are up for a challenge.
