I've cast on another pair of socks in a new-to-my-stash yarn called Jitterbug in the "Toscana" colorway.
Double pointed needles are my needles of choice, and I like to work on both socks at the same time. Well, not exactly at the same time, but alternating between the two. This helps me to avoid finishing one sock and never completing the second. Plus it enables me to ensure that both socks are identical in size. :-)
This is the first time, however, that I've knit both socks simultaneously but from the same skein of yarn. One sock is using the end of yarn from the inside, and the other sock is knit with the outer thread. So far this is working out great....no tangles or other problems. I'm sure this has been done many times by everyone else, but I feel so ingenious.
Off the computer to go knit some more!
