I started a sock today

My new knitting class started tonight. I chose to do a cuff down sock. It's okay so far, my k2p2 ribbing on the top is very loose, but I'm not worried about it.

Any sock knitting advice?

No advice here! I just wanted to say GL! My neighbor knits socks and they look awesome!

I am knitting a pair of socks for the first time too! My advice is, if you're prone to having 'ladders' where the dpns meet, knit a couple extra stitches from the next needle onto the last one to move the 'intersection' over a bit and make it less noticeable. YKWIM?

Has anyone knit socks with two circulars instead of DPN?

I've never knit socks. Like mittens, their life span is so short at my house that it would break my heart to see them lost or with holes in them!
