GAH!

I started the 2nd Ecru sock that I had been putting off for awhile last Saturday.  I’ve been working away on it during breaks at school this week and am half way to the heel!

Put there’s a problem.

Ecru

See it?

No.  It’s not the stripes…  I could care less if my socks don’t match.  I thin it gives them character.  The problem: my gauge.  I’m half a stitch off.  ugh.  This half a stitch does make a big difference seeing as how it makes the sock a half inch less around.

So.  I’m off to rip it out, cast on again and try to “loosen up.”  I need to stop knitting soooo tightly.

Ugh I think I’m having that same problem right now… since it’s finally cold outside I’ve been knitting much tighter than before. They are cute socks, though!
