Second Sock Syndrome, ME?

Remember this post about the "Glitter Sock" ?

A year to finish a pair of socks? Yep. I can't believe a year has passed but I am now the proud owner of a new pair of glittery socks!

A pair Friday Night and putting my feet up

We are expecting rain over the entire weekend so I guess I should start another pair now!

Yay, well done on finishing a pair(!!) of socks. I've got a second sock on my needles right now...

I saw your post on the Ravelry geocaching group.

My friend shared this tip with me to avoid second sock syndrome. You need two sets of dp needles in the same size. You cast on one sock and then the other (one on each set). You knit step one on one sock, and then the other. You knit step two on one sock and then the other. And on and on. This way, you are at the same point on both socks instead of having one sock done and having to start completely over again. It's a dirty mind trick but I tried it and it worked. Hopefully that made sense.
