Update on the sock I showed on my last post...I had just cast on and only had one row knitted at that post.

I worked on this sock last night at Chicks with Sticks. It may still be an issue of "practice makes perfect" or possibly the yarn??....but it seems the top of my sock is "waivy"...anyone got any ideas? I typically knit tight....although I force myself to knit loosely and I think I am doing a good job if I do say so myself.

When I am working on the ribbing which all I have done so far is K1, P1 ribbing....it seems no matter how tight I pull it is still loose......I'm open for suggestions!

Is it loose at the join?

Actually that part is getting a bit better..so I think it is something that will get better with practice....it's pretty much all the first and second row of the ribbing....I'll see if I can get a really close pic and post.

What size needles are you using? It just looks a little loose to me. It will probably look fine when it's on.

I'm using a size 2 for this sock.

It could just be an overly loose cast on. I feel like a k2 p2 rib pulls in a little better for me.
