The Evil Twin has been on Amazon again....

These 2 exciting books arrived today but I haven't had a chance to look at them yet. I haven't done much with distorting fabric, though I can get quite carried away with my little heat tool.
I thought this one might solve my problem of never getting the second sock knitted........what do you think?

I don't knit, but have heard of people knitting both socks, or sleeves at the same time so they maintain the same tension throughout.

Tut. That wasn't the evil twin, that was the GOOD twin!!!

Good idea on the double sock knitting - I'll be interested to see if it works. I have second sock syndrome too!

What a great idea to knit the 2 socks at once, that certainly gets round the one sock syndrome.
I've got the other book and it's a great resource, but I have to admit I haven't gone down that road very much, I hoped it might inspire me to, but I'm still waiti.g LOL

I would never get the 1st one knitted! I never knit, though I like to crochet occaisionally.

Distorting sounds like fun!

Love the title of your lecture too! It's brings interesting images to mind!

I only knit two socks at a time. If there is a reason why I can't use circulars for a sock pattern (have to transfer stitches between needles frequently, for instance), I pick another pattern.

I don't have SSS for that reason.

The other book looks intriguing. I just saw a show on serger crochet and it has piqued my interest in playing with thread. Hmmm, is my evil twin calling?
