to knit socks????
I have casted on the amount of stiches needed and then split them to the 2 needles but after that I am lost.
I know that you knit with the same needle but the thread is at the wrong end.
to I just push the stiches to the other end of the needle???
I am so confused it is crazy.
thought maybe one of you can explain it to me or send me to a website with a demo thanks for any help imabest

Yep, just push the stitches to the other end of the needle. Leave the stitches that are on the other needle somewhere in the middle. It will be easier to maneuver if you do that.
