Something new

23/365

Last Christmas I had an epiphany! I figured out how to knit two socks at once. I tried to figure out the magic loop, but I was spending Christmas at a place far away from internet and couldn't seek help online on that subject, so I used my brain instead. I realized that two socks can be knitted at once like these pictures show.
Afterwards I red that it's called double knitting and in Leo Tolstoi's 'War and Peace' a nanny knits two socks simultaneously like this. Interesting! Yeah.. haven't red that one. Maybe I should read it just to experience that moment when the twin socks are born.
