The thought of it terrified me but I was assured that it was easy. Once I got started and comfy with holding the needles it was surprisingly easy. I didn't find it as difficult doing the heel as I imagined but then that might be because I have already made three pairs of socks on two needles. The best part of it was not having to sew up the seams afterwards.
Dashing off now to start its partner because I'm desperate to wear them.
