Kate is a good teacher but she used only dpn's I want to see more on long circular needles technique. I think she should show all types of heels and toe techniques, the waste of time and money for me.

I'm glad I took the class, Kate is an excellent instructor and explains the technique well, but sadly this method is not for me. I find it too slow, and hard to use for more difficult patterns.

Oh! This class was WONDERFUL! :)

I've tried for 5 years (off and on) to master knitting two socks at one time using magic loop, dpns, and knitting one sock then the other on the same needle. I understood it but still felt frustrated and confused when trying it. Sigh.

Kate's explanations and modifications to other people's methods of doing this made all the difference! As I watched I started giggling because a light bulb went off! I GOT IT! Her simplified methods have made all the difference!

I'm now taking another of her classes as I enjoy her methods of teaching so thoroughly! If you're looking for a GREAT instructor for 2 in 1 Socks, THIS IS THE CLASS!!

I love the class. I couldn't get the same color for both socks to work for me so I thought I would try for two pairs in different colors. I have some variegated yarn that I might try next. I haven't gotten to the point of the heel yet, but I am listening to the rest of the class as I work the legs.
I do have one question: for the foot measurement (minus 2 inches for the toe) - do I measure from the back of the heel, or from where the heel connects under the foot?

Virginia - So happy to hear that you are loving the video. For the foot measurement, measure from the tip of your toe to the back tip of your heel and subtract your 2 inches. Happy knitting!
