Two at a time?

I have reached the cuff on my second sock and I think it’s safe to say that I will have enough yarn to finish. I’m a bit surprised actually but nonetheless happy. I’ve never been intrigued by the thought to knit two socks at the same time. I’ve rarely had a problem with Second Sock Syndrome (now sleeves, that’s a different story) and I like the feeling of a finished sock. I know people who really likes knitting two at a time but for me it works best with one at a time. But then again I also prefer dpn’s over magic-loop. I have also met people who are intrigued by the thought of knitting two at the same time but once they find out that you need two balls of yarn, or att least two ends from the same ball, they are not as impressed anymore. No matter if you knit the socks side by side or one inside the other it requires two yarn ends. One knitter was very persistent that it could be done anyway and I figured she had to try for herself (although she insisted I taught her but didn’t want to hear anything about it requiring two ends). I hope that she understood that it can’t be done, when she gave it a thought. Unless of course you want socks so attached to each other that you can’t move your feet, or even get them on your feet…
