How about I introduce you to a great sock in progress?
I am on sock number one which I have knit and pulled out twice so I feel as though I am on sock number three, but really close in reality to finishing just one.
That said, I LOVE these socks! The pattern is uniquely original and I like how a lot of the action happens on the sides instead of the top.
What went wrong? The first time the sock was too big. Yes, I am fussy about sock fit. I frogged it all and cast on with smaller needles.
The second time I overcompensated and skipped a cable repeat which made the sock too short. I frogged back to the point where I made the error and started anew.
I have now turned the heel and the sock fits perfectly... Yay!
Pattern: The Firestarter by Yarnissima.
Yarn: Schaefer Heather in Julia Child color.
Needles: 2.5mm (US size 1) double pointed.
I must say I have a great story about one location where I did a few rows on this sock, and it sort of involves Clint Eastwood (!) but you'll have to wait a couple of days to read it.
I'm not trying to be a troublemaker, it's just that I want to tell the story properly and that will require a bit of editing first, you understand.
