Learning Socks Two-At-A-Time

So, with all the socks I want to knit this year... and with how that second sock really drags, I decided I needed to learn how to knit Two-At-A-Time.

2 at a time socks

These are for Helen (they are fraternal twins since the stripes don't match up!). The pattern is the Most Basic Kid's Sock, and I am knitting the 4 to 8 year old size.

I found a great picture tutorial at Knit Freedom with Liat of how to cast on. The "picture" part is important, because it was naptime and I actually had both girls asleep and didn't want to wake them with a YouTube video!

I am not sure what I am going to do once I get to the gussets, I may switch to DPNs and then back to magic loop, but I think I am going to like this Two-At-A-Time thing!
