Knitting both socks at once is kind of genius. It guarantees they’ll be the same length and tension…but was it also twice as much trouble? Of course I had to check.
Then, I had an idea.
Knitting boot cuffs two at a time!
Not only do I (still) have lots of outstanding orders but I could check out the technique and maybe pick up a skill or two along the way.
In practice I suffer from the tendency to rush. I don’t use enough yarn and spread the yarn bits around as I cut. Making it difficult to tie a string around the, you know, bits. The good news is I’ve scoured the Internet and found three foolproof pom pom tutorials (technically four) for people like me. People who need help making pom poms.
