Sock Knit Along Progress

This is my little knitting helper - one of my sister's dogs!  She loves to sit on my lap and watch me knit - and I let her do that after we had a serious discussion about NOT stealing my ball of yarn, LOL.  If you look closely at the photo you can see I am wearing my friends red sock - just as a pattern reference, you know? The yarn I am using is Regia - I am not sure I really like it all that much because it is not as soft as Kroy.  I need to find some Kroy for the next pair!  Or is it Croy?  I think it is Kroy and let me tell you - it is a favorite sock yarn with my friends in Canada.

These are winter socks so have a longer leg.  I am down to the heel split, but have lost my 4th needle - I think I left it another sister's house!  So - hopefully in the next few days I will be able to get my lost needle and get back to knitting.
How about the rest of you?  Socks on the needle?  Oh - and yes, I was going to try the 2 pairs at once method, but first I have to get that 1 ball of yarn divided into 2 and sometimes it is the simpliest of things that seem so difficult at times, so I am happy to stick with my dpn's for this pair!

I like the Kroy yarn, too. So soft and squishy!

You should learn how to knit socks on two circular needles rather than DPNs. It really is easy. Think about it: there are still 4 needles. Go to youtube and search for Cat Bordhi. She has several videos on knitting a sock using circs. Is it the Kroy that is made by Paton's? I can get it at Hobby Lobby, so maybe it is available at Michaels or Joanns.

You're a much better knitter than I am. I would never try two colors at once.

It is Kroy and I found it at JoAnn's. If you have a coupon you can even get it for cheaper. I am knitting a pair of socks for my grandson right now and really like how the yarn knits up.
