One Sock Down

One sock down. The second pair is on the needles.

Sock one came out just fine, aside from a little kitchener glitch at the very end. 

Total brain malfunction. 

I found adjusting the number of stitches from 64 from 52 required more math than the pattern let on. I just hope I can read my scribbled penmenship when I go to work the second sock, ideally repeating the effort the same way I worked the first. I suppose this is why Ravelry invented Project pages. I should probably try using that particular feature. 

This must be some people opt to hire personal assistants…to keep all knitting projects nice and organized on Ravelry.

We are fresh off a trip up to the Oregon coast to visit grandpa. Two days of driving solo with Reed zapped two days of knitting time. 

Worth it for the view.

    What a nice picture with your little one!

    So you got the first sock done!!! I like the yarn even better as a whole full sock–can’t go wrong with blue.

    You’re lightyears ahead of me on this pattern. I’ve tried to turn the heel, and failed, four or five times now. For the moment I’ve abandoned my less-than-half-sock in a corner in favor of some other projects. (That will solve the problem, right? Knitting-fixing pixies exist?)

    Wow…nice socks and kudos for working out the math. I might be inclined to ‘rent out’ my Ravelry services. You’ll do fine….take it on project at a time. I update notes probably 3 times. It’s a strong probability I’ll remake the socks that helps motivate me to keep notes.
