Size 1s with dark yarn is not a good way to learn to do 2 at once, toe up socks! :) I used size 6s, although the yarn was dark, and didn't have too much trouble. I would suggest light yarn and bigger needles, so you can see what you are working on... No point stressing yourself even more!

You are soooo right! I have the pattern for the Worsted Weight Socks and I found yarn called 'Swish' on Knit Picks that will work much better on size 7 needles. I think the fact that I've learned to make socks only one way which is Top Down ,is making it hard to shift gears.
