Two Toe Up socks on One Circular Needle

so, as per my last post, I mentioned that I had started a new project.

Knitted socks!

yep! socks!

I found a tutorial, and am following it for my first attempt.... but not only am I attempting socks, I'm trying out the Magic Loop method as well....

I know.... I know.... I'm crazy, and sometimes I go overboard. But what can I say? That's the way I was taught to be! :)

So, here's the tutorial I'm following...

And here's my progress thus far...
(remember, I started this project last night)

I must say you are prety fast in your knitting.

I love the colour of your knitting needle, what brand is that ?

Thank you jl, yes, it does seem to be working up fast, considering there is only knit sts.And the needles are just Addi Turbo's in silver.

The place you got your tutorial is a good site, I went there when i was first learning to do socks as well.
