Seems I did not follow the pattern, my needles were too large so that made the socks sloppy. And I did not follow the pattern for the pattern......make sense? Sometimes we(I) read things the way we(I) want them to read, not the way they actually read. It took me this long to figure that out. So off the needles they came! Dang, I hate that!!
Bright and early Thursday morning, I started over. I am using the proper size needles, knitting only 1 sock-must buy circulars this size-added ribbing and am now correctly following the pattern. I really like the way this is looking. Despite having all the purl rows (not my favorite thing to do), I think this will be one of my favorite designs.
These are my September socks for the 12 in 2012 Challenge. I need to get caught up this month! No pressure!!! This is for fun...........I keep telling myself that.
What's on your needles? See what others are working on here.
