All has been pretty quiet on the knitting front.
I finished up a few odd socks – very proud of myself – but while I still have a few more to do, I couldn’t help but cast on my Duets Sock (in your basic toe-up pattern with ‘Magic’ Figure Eight Cast-On).
I should have listened to my gut however, as The Universe insisted on bitch slapping me at every turn.
Problem: Sock too big.
Solution: Frog and use smaller needles.
Problem: Sock too small.
Solution: Frog and use bigger needles but fewer stitches.
Problem: Short row heel too shallow.
Solution: Rip out (completed) heel and rework wrapping several extra stitches.
Anyhow, I finally finished up the first of the two, leaving the cast off until I see if there’s enough of the brown left to do a cuff.
Final Solution: Mom will be getting these socks for Mother’s Day and I will be pronounced World’s Greatest Daughter.
I’m sick of these socks anyhow.
