Socks

I have been trying out the magic loop method to knit two socks at a time. 
Its amazing how fast it is, I finished one pair in three days. I have started another pair the same because I I brought two balls of yarn for $5.00 and will get two and a bit pairs out of it. Wayne is quite happy to have two pairs the same colour , I have made the toes different on each pair. If you knit sock and have not tried the magic loop method have a go its fantastic and so easy . Here is the site I use http://www.cometosilver.com/socks/2mlsocks_start.htm
I only make toe up socks but you can use the loop for top down as well.

I'm Darlene from the "Socks toe up" group. I stopped by to say; "Hi".

I love your yarn and I too have just started using ML 2 at a time for my socks. It took me a bit longer than you to get my socks done as I had things going on in between the knitting. However, they were STILL completed in less than a month. My first pair of socks (the ML pair were my second pair) were done on DPN's and it took me almost a YEAR to get both of them done. So, like you I LOVE doing socks this way! I agree that this way is SO much faster than DPN's.
