2-sock Addendum

Just wanted to clarify something about the baby socks I wrote about in the last post. 2 socks at a time from the same ball of yarn is fine. I usually knit my socks this way if I’m not trying for twins in a self-striper. You make a center-pull ball from the yarn and knit one sock from the center and one sock from the outside of the ball. Easy. Sometimes it gets a little twisted around itself, and you just untwist as necessary.

The trouble I had was trying to knit two socks at a time from 2 balls at a time. I was using both balls the same way - knitting one sock from the center of each, and one from the outside. And what with the fact that I was knitting one yarn every round and one yarn every other round and the twisting and the solid color ball was disintegrating, well, it was a scaring mess very quickly.

That’s two different balls (all though the solid burgundy has completely lost structural integrity (seriously, it’s burgundy, not brown)):

Now I’ve been thinking about the topology of the thing (and if two socks from one ball makes your head spin, don’t think about this), and I think it should be possible with a little care and a little more planning. But I was going for quick and dirty, and it just didn’t seem to be working. Of course, I spent about an hour with the separating and untangling and rewinding, so with my maybe 10 rounds that I’d knit, I’d have probably been ahead starting over. But they’re done now. And I’m putting it out of my head.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
