Hi to all, my first post.

Hi to all, my first post. I usually just add comments to other posts. This is a photo of some socks I knit using Knit Picks Coney Island yarn. They were knit toe-up, and two at a time using the "magic loop" technique.

really nice.

good work!

i hope to attempt 2-at-a-time socks soon.

Thank you!

I had to find out about the "two at a time" magic loop technique as soon as I heard about the dreaded second sock syndrome. I have to many colorful sock yarns wanting my attention next.

I'm fascinated both by your toe-up reference and both at the same time. I assume you are working them flat and joining a flat seam on completion? Have you an on-line url of the instructions?

These were knitted in the round. I will look and see if I have the pattern still, and let you know soon.

Those are very nice. You really lucked out that the stripes matched up. Not a common event, even if you strive for it. I do top down one at a time, having never had much problem with second sock syndrome. Thanks for sharing and welcome to the group.

I will post a group photo of some of the socks I have knit soon, also I will explain how I get the stripes to match.
