Better than before
You knew I was going to do it – I frogged the heel and half a repeat right after I posted last night. And now I’m past where I was before!
Uhm, yeah. Did I mention sportweight yarn?
Since I was already re-knitting the heel, I shortened it by a few rows because I thought it was a little too long in its former life.
Also, as though these socks needed any more prettiness, I used the pretty way to pick up stitches along the heel flap:
Oooo, these are SO Grandma socks!
Look, ma, no ladder! (Yes, there was a dpn join right down the middle of the sole)
I feel much better having rescued that bit of yarn, all while making the sock better than before – now I will definitely have enough. I think ;).
Now, I hear I have to knit another, but wow, I have zero motivation to cast on. I think this Saturday ruined me – all that casting on, ripping out, trial and error – it’s as though I’ve already knit another sock!
Oh, and the new Vogue? Man, what a disappointment, hence its proper use as a sock rest – don’t want to get these oatmeal puppies too dirty! I’m so ready to knit a sweater, and although a pattern would have been nice, I would have settled for at least some inspiration. But, alas, zip, zilch, nada, and my favorite, BLEH.
