Question from Lorri, After learning to knit about a year and a half ago I have decided that I want to try socks. Of all the methods one can use to knit them I find knitting on 2 circulars to resonate the most with me. Most recommend two 24” circulars but that sounds long and floppy to me. Laura I noticed you used to knit your socks that way and it looked like your needles were shorter. What would you recommend to a newer 2 circular knitter and do you have any other quick tips . Thank you”
