Worked on my sock this weekend....almost finished this one!
For some reason I can't seem to get the top row of the socks to be even....see that little spot at the top where the white seems to disappear and "dip" down? I have made 4 mini socks and 2 regular size socks and every one is like this. I can't figure out what I am doing wrong! I still have a bit of work to get my technique to where all my "joins" are as tight as the other parts....seems like no matter how hard I pull or hold the needles together there are several spots that the stitches are very loose.....but again.....I'm thinking the more I do this the better this will get.....or perhaps it is the type yarn I am using? I'm not sure about the mini-sock yarn (not sure if I still have the label)....but this sock and the green one are both Knit Picks yarn. Any ideas what I am doing wrong?
As soon as I finish up this sock, make it's mate and make the mate for the green stripe sock I'm going to start working on the toddler socks for CIC (www.childrenincommon.org). I can't wait to start this project and hope I can get a lot of pairs done and on their way to Russia!!
