Sock surgery


Here’s my new six needle technique… two circulars and four DPN’s. Don’t you just hate when you’re ready to begin the toe of a sock, only to read the pattern and realize you f’ed up about four inches back? And I thought I was going to finish this guy today.

I ASS-umed that I could just plow ahead once the gusset decreases had the same number of stitches on the sole as the instep. Nope. Due to the angularity of the zig-zag pattern, it’s 6 less stiches on the sock’s under belly. It wouldn’t have been a problem had I not already knit the first sock correctly. No wonder this one was striping nicely while its partner had a rotating pooling.

I’m ready to rip… say good-bye to this Dune-inspired monstrosity.

    Having recently had to rip out and redo the toe on a toe-up sock, I can empathize. You’ll feel such a wonderful sense of accomplishment when you’ve fixed it, though.

    Oh you dorkish dorkish man you just compared your sock to the sand worms of Arrakis. Of course I got the reference and it does work. : )
