What materials did you use? I was happy to knit with my microwave popcorn setting food dyed Regia ( originally white ) sock yarn to try out Lucy's cute double soled sock pattern.

Love this sock. Not sure if there will be a second sock to go with it. This might be my first sock that will suffer from SSS (second sock syndrome). I usually knit both socks at the same time. This time, I wanted to concentrate on Lucy's cool double sole, garter heel and girly cuff treatment. The sock fits well and is super comfy. The double sole is perfect for our Canadian winters. Thanks Lucy.

I wonder how to knit two socks at the same time. I've never seen that or heard of it. Wil you explain to me? I'd love to know because I have the same problem as you.

You have been very busy! I love all three of your projects added. If you like the sock as much as you do, it really needs its twin! Lovely knitting!

Hello Jettquilts, Thanks for your kind feedback. You are right, the sock needs its twin ! I am just so delighted with it this one and not yet convinced that its twin will be identical. Perhaps, this will be holiday knitting. We'll see, Cheers, Ariana

You cant let such a fab sock be a sock orphan. It has to have a friend. Xxx

Hello Andyteddi1276226, Good point ! Lucy's double sole Gemini sock pattern is lots of fun and produces a confy sock. My track record so far, when it comes to knitting socks one at a time is that it takes me knitting 3 socks to get one pair and that is why I prefer knitting two socks at the same time. Not sure if I am up to knitting two more socks for my sock orphan., when I can cast on and do 2 socks at the same time and put a frame on little sock orphan instead. Still deciding, Ariana

I love this sock. Did you combine a gusset heel with a shortrow heel?

12/27/2013 Flag

Hi Anitahoen1615836, You are correct. This is a hybrid heel which adds a short row heel before picking up the gusset stitches. The fit is very nice because you can customize the depth of your heel.

I wonder how to knit two socks at the same time. I've never seen that or heard of it. Wil you explain to me? I'd love to know because I have the same problem as you. Just to respond to your other comment about knitting two socks at the same time. There are several ways of doing this and by now I have come up with my own version. Not sure if I detailed how in my video podcast episode 6 which is all about knitting socks. Also, I talk about the class by Donna Druchunas on Knitting Socks Toe-Up. I might put a demo together to show how I knit two socks at the same time. It is easier to show how to do it than to write about it. In a nutshell: I use 1 circular needle, one ball of wool for each sock, cast on the number of stitches required by each sock onto the long circa. needle. Then you knit. It is easier if you see it done. Hope this can get you started.
