Hi Tammy --- I'm not in your sock swap, but I have a couple of links for you. There's a "magic" cast-on for top-up socks and it shows in detail how to do two at once.

And then here's a generic toe-up sock pattern. I just ignore the toe part and use it for the heel.

Actually, 2 at a time makes me nuts because of having to untwist the two balls of yarn, but go for it!
