I have seen people knitting sleeves two at a time. It seems simple enough, but Inhave learned from experience that what seems simple in youtube tutorial could be a bloody complicated task in practice.
However, as usual, I was bored and I did need a challenge. So I watched the tutorial once more, and started with my sleeves.
Casting on is piece of piss. Counting them needed more concentration. Having a notebook or doodle paper is always handy.
After ribbing, and a few rows, I finally mastered the technique of knitting them without getting both yarns all tangled up.
I have to say that I don’t really fancy doing two things at once. I found multitasking very confusing. But the row counter in the end of my needles was a godsend so that I could do knitting without being bothered with counting.
Even so, I have to say that for knitting sleeves it is much better to do two at a time. It will make sure both will end up exactly the same, and in a similar tension.
Now I have to sew them together. I hate sewing 😦
