I have finally gotten the hang of knitting two socks at the same time on two circular needles. The benefit to this method is you don't end up with a bunch of single socks or socks that are slightly different sizes.
It was very confusing keeping the yarns from getting tangled and picking up the right needle and knitting in the right direction to begin with. Once I got past the initial toe increases things started to go more smoothly. I am getting a little braver with adding pattern to my knitting by adding a simple lace pattern up the front. After I turn the ankle I may add a few more lace sections up the sides and back. This is some of my sock yarn I dyed last january with Emily Parson and Laura Wasilowski.
