Multitasking at its Best

Not to shrink back from a challenge, I decided to attempt to knit two socks on one circular needle. A friend in the Socks for Soldiers Group gave me the link below. To add another challenge, this is being done with one skein of yarn, using both ends. It was awkward at first, but you slowly get the hang of it and wonder why you thought it be difficult in the first place. Shown are the beginnings of socks for my mother inlaw. They are being knitted with Sockotta Italian Cotton Blend Yarn on Size 1 Addi Turbo Needles.

Still Knitting Socks

Here's a picture I submitted with a pair of leisure socks made for "Socks for Soldiers." The yarn used was Mountain Color Yarn that was donated to the group. They were made the magic loop method with size one Addi Turbo Needles.
