One. Two. Three. Four. Get your knitting on the floor.

One. Yuck. Paired decreases look unattractive when stretched over foot.

Two. The tension of this pattern is tighter than simple stockinette. Yep. Unattractive decreases, and the sock is too small.

Three. Oh, these decreases look better, but they draw in the yarn even more. Plus now it's a hodgepodge of my experimentation.

Four. Spaghetti!

Five. Just. Plain. Weird. Looking.

Six. Six will be in the next entry, Coolio?

Too bad, because I liked the way the paired decreases looked on the needles, and I was pulling for you. But I can't wait to see what comes next out of Grumperina's Knitting Workshop!

Hmmmm...they were looking good to me (you know, incase I am your sock pal). I know you'll work out the decrease problem.

You're getting there...please don't give up! I love that pattern!

OH NO!!!
Wah... I loved those socks! *sigh* *sniffle* you'll fix it right? I really liked the decreases, but you are right...little ladder-y things on top of foot are not wonderful. :)
i'm sure you can figure this out!

Sorry. I have to agree with you on the frogging. But you'd never know unless you tried.

Right now the "sock" is in it's resting state. When it feels better it can be more than it ever was!

Well crap. Sorry the decreases didn't work out, but there is something else better in store for that lovely yarn - an even more brillian sock pattern.

Boo hiss...I was really hoping the decreases would look ok. Well, sometimes the frog pond is the only way to go (tho it's not fun).

Sometimes a girl's got to do what a girl's got to do. Your second decreases do look good -- just cast on a few more stitches and you're good to go. But will you make them again? I wonder? To tomorrow...

Into every life a little frogging must come.

That sucks b/c that pattern was really nice! I have no doubt you'll find something more suitable though. :)

I really loved that pattern. So sorry that the foot didn't work out :-(

Experimentation is the spice of life. How would you know anything else otherwise? Looking forward to seeing the next sock iteration.

Big sigh! Frame Six: One sad ball of yarn!
