The P update.

TADA! It's actually 2 repeats of the 22 rounds in the pattern. With the new larger needles and me paying more attention to the graph. I have been focusing so much on the graph that I've noticed that I'm not even really doing it right... I read at the bottom how I'm supposed to be doing it. Well I'm only a little off. I think I am knitting it backward. Graphs are fun and all but why can't they just put them left to right top to bottom? What's really weird is I always knit socks with DPNs but this time I'm getting some wonky stitches on the bottom of the foot. I think it's b/c I've knit with smaller needles which left little kinks in the yarn, b/c it was soo tight. These much large needles are working so much better the stitches are much looser and it's feeling soft and knitting so much easier. Plus I figure once I wash and block the socks the stitches on the bottom should even out.
anyways that's my update for ya and I'm sticking to it. I am loving this pattern BTW and I'm liking the way it's turning out.. I'm thinking of doing it again with some of my sock yarn stash in a color I'm into.

Allena, the p sock looks excellent! I also love the colour; what yarn are you using? Even though you say it's not correct; it looks good as you say.

A mere minute before I saw these pix, I was looking at another pair of P's in solid red, thinking that those would look amazing in solid teal:-) LOVE THEM!!

Love the socks! What an intricate design. I'm with you - don't know why the charts are read from right to left! Makes no sense to me.
