I hope y’all don’t mind if I share a little brag. I have been wanting to learn 2 socks on one needle using double knit since I learned of it last year (described in this Knitty article).
I sat down with it once or twice before, but didn’t “get it”. Well, tonight I finally decided I was going to stick with it until I got it. I took two brightly contrasting colors of worsted weight yarn, size 4 DPNs, and went for it. I have read the article many times before, but tonight I really studied the instructions, and since I wasn’t trying to do it w/two balls of the same color sock weight yarn, I “got it”. I can knit and purl w/o crossing the streams (um, strands). I haven’t tried decreasing yet, but now that I get the concept, I think I will be able to do it.
I am so super excited! I have to thank the woman who wrote the Knitty article as well as Amy because I watched her video on double-knitting to help me better understand the concept (Amy’s video is a slightly different technique, but very helpful nonetheless!)
I spend most of my knitting time frogging or otherwise trying to fix mistakes, so it’s nice to have a success once in a while :happydance:
