I have written Colorado knits answer in my notebook. this KP person may now take a bow...
Banzai! Hip, Hip, Hooray!
BTW, thanks. I usually get the two mixed up and I can't tell you howmany times I have made the substitution of k2tog for SSK and had to rip it out to fix---sometimes whole rows down. Ouch!
Thanks. I've written this before, but I was taught by a yarn shop owner in a socks class to do SSK this way (it lies flatter):
-- Knit together.
It's the only way I've done it for years.
