What a tale of woe I have to weave today. It began when I put down my Hermione’s Everyday Socks in October of last year to work on grief knitting, which then turned into Christmas knitting, which then turned into test knitting, which then turned into ulnar nerve problems, which then turned into…you get the picture.
The good news is that I have one sock finally complete. So, I have a HO (Half Finished Object). The bad news is that it’s totally off pattern from where I stopped last year. I remember telling you how I had messed up the pattern and meticulously tinked back to where I had started. Well, this time it really caught me unaware as I didn’t notice until I was 8 rows into the toe decreases. Boo…hiss! I had a dilemma on my hands. Tink back again? Or just continue and finish the darn sock. You can see below what I decided to do, justifying that these are for me and no one, except my husband ,will see the foot of the sock. It fits perfectly and I learned the kitchener stitch, so that’s good news.
Now, I’m stuck on second sock syndrome. I desperately want to have a full pair of finished socks made from gorgeous sock yarn. I cast on and completed three rows on March 27th. Have I touched it since then? No. I really need to get out of my own head and just get on with it. I’m having a case of…well, I knit one…oh, look at all the other pretty things out there to knit. I’m even looking at other sock patterns! Yep, that just about covers it.
Some of our sock club buddies are offline for now; however do go and check out Hannah cause she’s rocking her socks, just like me!
Until next time, Happy Knitting!
