Stupid sock…

30 05 2006

My sock is making me mad again. I think I’ll frog.

I’m always frogging the stupid socks.

I think I just can’t knit socks on DPNs… I love DPNs. They make me happy. Everything goes great on them when I’m working with acrylic, but this sock yarn… it just isn’t working. I have bizarre stripes down the socks, which I think may be from pulling to tight, and the sock just feels loose. Maybe that’s how it’s supposed to feel. I don’t know. I’ll deal with it in the morning.

I think I need a new pattern. Maybe I’ll give Pomatomus another try. This time. When I make socks… I’m so swatching. I think I’ll get out that cheap acrylic sock yarn I bought too… that way I get the first real pair of completed socks on not-so-amazing yarn. So I won’t feel bad about it.

We’ll see what tomorrow brings. I have tons of sock patterns laying around. I thought about making some out of worsted weight arylic just for the practice. Why not… I’ve got loads of it.

What type of DPNs are you using? How many? and what material? Take a picture of the ‘stripes’ you are talking about (are they what’s known as laddering?) and possibly I can advise…

Yer Pal.
