story of a sock

Tthis is not a happy story...
NOTE to self.... don't stop in the middle of the pattern row complete that row and then stop.
Remember this sock?
well it went from that to this and finally now this... bummer huh? well i'd stopped in the middle of the pattern row and messed it up a bit. it was off by a few stitches so knowing i'm giving this away i ripped it out and started again.
i'm on the 1st row of the pattern. Notice i also changed needles. the ones i was using were a little small so i went up a size or 2 and now the yarn seems a little more soft. i hope it will knit faster too. once i work on them that is.... LOL you know me....

Been there, done that several times! Hope it works better with the larger needles!

You could consider the first try a training session:) Keep the chart close at hand. I'll be knitting the same pattern soon. Do tell us how it turns out.

I've also got a sock to frog - messed up on the heel. It happens. (But don't you wish it would happen to someone else?)

Two steps forward, one step back. It's better than one step forward, two steps back!

The socks look great!
