That's the way I roll!
I put the two socks on different colored dpns. Then write down on the top of the pattern which color dpns will be the second set. I always finish with the second set, so that I will be ready to work on the first set for the next round. It's tedious, but my socks turn out exactly the same length, and they get finished at exactly the same time!
Here's a pair I worked on a long time ago:
