This winter I cast-on some Regia sock yarn, intending to make myself some colorful socks. To avoid SSS ("second sock syndrome") a sad disorder which prevents completion of the second sock in a pair after finishing the first, resulting in the production of many lonely, single socks), I typically work socks in tandem. I knit the first sock to the ankle, then cast on the second sock using another set of needles, complete it to the ankle and finish the heel. Then pick up sock #1, complete heel and the foot. On sock#2 complete foot and toes, and finally complete the toe of sock #1. Both done at the same time!
