Socks, Socks, Blah!!

So, I started the wonderful Koigu Socks on 2 circs. It took me a little while to figure it out and to be sure I was on track. After a few hours of knitting as I started a few rows of the heel flap, I decide to try them on.

exhibit B:




As you can see they are too big. RIP, rip, rip. I'll restart Friday, I need to buy some Addis. I don't like the join with these bamboo needles. With all of the moving of stitches back and forth, they were getting stuck. I'll pick up the Addis on my way home Friday and start over. I'm determined to get this right. In the mean time, I've ordered more yarn.......

That's such a bummer. It's looks like they'll be ankle socks, though, so you didn't have to knit too much! You'll love the Addi's I think.

Shar,
You are branching out! You go girl ~taking such a risk on starting socks! I am impressed. I am still struggling with my lace baby bonnet. All the best.

Thanks Gina, I'm impressed you are committed to getting the bonnet done. I love that pattern but, I have no one to knit it for.

Addi's ARE great! Except for the slipperiest (is that a word?) yarn - I would use them all the time. I'm putting a little package in the mail for you today. I hope you like it!!
