Yup, War is Hell

Just in case you doubt it, I am knitting for a large footed person 3000 miles away. Lesson I should have learned from history: do NOT attempt an untried weapon in the heat of battle. I have never tried knitting two socks at a time (in any method) but deployed this questionable strategy yesterday.

I cast on and ripped. I attempted to rib and ripped. The frogs had a field day. Assassin: you may rest easy, here's all I actually did yesterday (and now I'm wasting time writing about it):

Aww... but you surely learnt to knit two socks at the same time, yes? You're much braver than me... my first socks on magic loop were done two months ago, and I wasn't daring enough to try to work two together. Maybe next time, without the pressure of the war... :)

This was my first attempt at two at a time and I was fine until I got to the heel flap. Then, disaster struck.
