The real title of this post should be
(Notice that play on Shark Week???)
Saturday we went to a banquet.
The drive was almost an hour so I made some good progress on my Plain Janes.
It was pouring rain so I just put my head down and the needles were flying.
I finished my Blueberry Waffle Socks.
They are too small.
I swear I measured 7" before I started to decrease the for the toe.
I need to stop swearing!
I am going to take this out and make the foot longer.
I want to wear these without regret!
The lesson learned here is to not use a tape measure but
use the 7" knitting needle I keep in my knitting bag instead.
Then the numbers won't confuse me!!!
Remember these funky socks I started back in January?
I pulled them out and started over.
One day I'll make this pattern but I'll do a stockinette sole
and probably start from the top.
I wasn't happy with having the pattern on the sole.
Even though it probably wouldn't be a problem.
Or I was more worried about the gusset and heel turn.
I wanted to make toe up so I found Glacier Lake Toe Up Socks.
Simple pattern, good instructions.
She has very good row by row instructions for the gusset and heel turn.
I'll use one of my good fitting socks to measure against
for when to start the gusset.
