Excellent progress! I especially like the socks but can't wait to see what the towels will look like!
2 at a time socks with out using magic loop? Do you have a link to more information. I really want to try socks, and this sounds like a really great idea.
There is no trick. I'm just using regular old doublepoints but knitting a little on one and then knitting a little on the other. Somehow they knit up in a flash this way and stay beautifully in sync. I learned it from kathy b on her Irish Eyes blog.
Ohhhh I LOVE the woven progress, your colors are perfect
