I was determined to knit a bit on my TTL Mystery Sock each day and I did. Each evening I would knit a repeat or two on this sock and things were going well until I finished turning the heel. It fit, the pattern looked great and there were no mistakes (I think).
I can’t get over how pretty the Eye of Partridge heel looks:)
Aha! All the smugness about that heel business was just the pre-cursor to all things going downhill from that point.
Doesn’t look like anything is wrong??? Let me explain…
Like every eager sock knitter, I tried the sock on every few repeats and always kept thinking that it was nice and snug on the leg but then really floppy on the foot. Each time I dismissed this seemingly disproportionate fit thinking that this is probably how handknit socks felt. Me crazy!!!
Enter sock sole to fit a Sasquatch…
It never occurred to me to check my STITCH COUNT! Bwaahahahaha grrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don’t feel like ripping, picking and re-knitting the foot of this sock right now and so the only way to go forward was to cast on for another pair!!!!
This time Cookie A’s Monkey in some delicious Ruby Red Fleece Artist (I’m having linkage problems so no links, sorry). No problems with this sock…yet!
