Evil Sock....or How to throw your project across the floor!

I decided to try the 2 socks on 2 circs method recently....and was quite unsuccessful! I used a tutorial from the internet. I couldn't even get the cast on right! When I finally had both socks on the needles, the working yarn tangled and I threw the whole thing across the floor while screaming a few expletives! So for the sake of my sanity (or whatever is left of my sanity), I frogged and then went back to my 1 sock on 2 circs method. I still cast on a larger dpn and then move the stitches to 4 of the right size dpns and do the first several rows on them, then transfer to 2 circs...somehow it is easier for me that way. Since taking this picture over the weekend, I have got almost all of the foot done (and I am almost out of yarn....what to do....since I bought 2 skeins and it said 2 skeins make a pair...so I think I will get as much done as possible, then put this one on scrap yarn and start the next...then if I have anything leftover from sock #2, I can get them both completely done....worst case is I will find a coordinating yarn to do the toes with). But this project will be put away before Friday in anticipation of Sock Wars!!!!
