I really messed up these socks. They are just for me, but dang. I hate when I put time into something and then I see a big old mistake later. See the goofy line mid right foot ? I also messed up on the three needle bind off on BOTH toes. Somethings gotta give here. I love knitting socks. When I have a mishap or several as in this case, I get that defeated pain in my knit heart. These are SIMPLE Plain top down socks and I messed them up. I’ll wear them. They’ll probably last a long time just to mock me!!
What’s a girl to do? Cast on again. This is Lorna’s Laces Frankensteins Cotillion. (Shepherds sock, 80/20 Superwash) I love this colorway and see nothing scary about it. I see Sunflower yellows and tans with aqua highlights. I ordered lovely square needles in their smallest size at SimplySocks. So I’m knitting them on 3s. These needles are slick! I have to catch the live ones from slipping off them. But. I . Like! I’m thinking I’ll rib the entire thing. We shall see. Did I mention Simplysocks will send wound yarn for no additional fee? Whee!
I’m going to cast on for a Twiddle Mitt now in red. I want to let these socks simmer while I Keep up the Mitt campaign. I also have a pair of fingerless in malabrigos on my needles.
It is highly unusual for me to have more than one thing on my needles. It feels good to have some choices. I may get used to this. Sometimes I rush the second sock just to finish it to go to something else. Perhaps having a few things on the needles will help me avoid that finish stress.
