I try to do a pair of socks every month and I actually made these three pairs in one month. They are for my two nieces and my nephew. I used my favourite sock yarn - Kroy, and 2.25mm needles.
I am taking a sock class this w/e. I may need to ask you some questions.
For heaven's sake, Ron, slow down! You are making me feel bad. :-)
Very nice socks, Ron. I haven't used Kroy yet but keep hearing good things about it. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
Very nice Ron. What a prolific output, I tend to suffer from second sock syndrome. One I finished in Dec is still waiting for its mate.
I have friends who knit the two socks at the same time but on different sets of needles. They knit the cuff on one and then on the other. They knit to the heel on one and then on the other and so on. It seems to work for them. We were taught to cast on for the second sock and knit four or five rounds right after finishing the first.
Every month?! Wow -- Socks take me monthS on end... *I get so sick of them....put them away...* (repeat from * to * ad naseum)....
Nothing beats hand-knit socks though.
Grace and Peace,
Promoting and inspiring the art of knitting amongst men.
