Two Toe Tuesday

Two Toes

Toe #2 has been added to the needles, and from here on out I'll be knitting two at once. Although Toe #1 looks a little misshapen above, that's just the way it's resting--I hope. I'd hate to rip it out, although I'll take another look at it when I'm not so glad just to be done with the short rows. I like the results, but I need to knit a toe like that all in one sitting which can be tough. Here's a close up of toe one (with the orange marker), showing the pattern:

Toe One

I don't like to choose favorites, but Toe One is my favorite so far. Toe One doesn't stay out late, or wake me up in the middle of the night, or cause any of the problems that I suspect Toe Two is cooking up.

Yes, two toes can be tricky. Looks good, I haven't tried the circular socks yet...getting there.

Wow--those look pretty. Are you doing 2 socks on 2 circs, or are you doing magic loop? It is such a good idea to do 2 at once--I definitely see the advantages just in gauge alone. But when I worked 2-on-2 I kept accidentally skipping one sock. It was too much for me to keep track of at the time and I haven't had the courage to revisit it. Any tips? How do you keep it straight? How did you learn 2 socks at once?

Love the pattern you chose! And, of course, Sundara is so very fab. Boy, I sure hope I'm your sock pal! ;)

They look great!
