Here I Go Again

After frogging the unloved sock, I cast on a new one yesterday. I am calling it Mom's Birthday Socks since even though they are for me, I cast on the first one on Mother's birthday. I am using two circular needles and knitting them toe-up. There is a great on-line tutorial called Silver's Sock Class with step-by-step instructions and photos. The website is here: http://www.cometosilver.com/socks/2circsocks_start.htm

Once I am comfortable knitting on two circulars I think I will try the two-at-once version so I'll never have the dreaded Second Sock Syndrone. I like the 2-circs knitting but think that for hats I will probably stick with doublepoints.
