Yessiree.....that's a sock on my foot!!!


I would like to think that the stripes going around is what is making my foot look incredibly wide....but alas....I have a wide foot....triple E width....so WHAT THE HECK was I thinking with this self striping yarn!! Gee....wonder if I can knit a sock with the stripes going up and down rather than round and round??!! LOL!!!

Must admit this sock was WAYYYY easier than my first attempts....helps when you know what you are doing!! LOL!! I love working with the self striping yarn....it is so much fun to watch the pattern emerge! This sock only has a couple of small issues....this yarn was so bad to separate and there are a couple of spots with the yarn looks pulled from not getting the entire loop on the needle....and a place or two where despite tugging hard the stich still looks loose.....but I'm not going to rip it out because of that! I blame part yarn and part just needing a bit more practice with my joining. I made these on # 3 dp needles and want to learn to use circs. I hope to set up a "knit date" with Tonni soon and see if she can help me with this.....oh...by the way Tonni....I'll be emailing soon! LOL!

Hope to finish the mate this week.....lot's of work to do this week so we'll see how much I get accomplished!!

WoW! A great first sock if I must say so myself! You know, I thought I saw on their website a sock pattern with the stripes going the other way.
