My brain has fled. I will blame the kids and my husband. Or I could blame my inability to double check my cast on number, but that wouldn’t be as fun. I started a pair of socks about a month ago and decided I could use a little bit more negative ease in them. I usually knit my socks with 72 stitches so this time I was going to knit them with 68 stithces. So I knit the first sock and things went swimmingly. After I turned the heel of the second sock I realized that I had been knitting with only 64 stitches. There was no way in bikini bottom that I was going to frog that thing so I tried it on, and it fit! My daughter decided these socks shouldn’t match so that offered a little solace. For some reason the stitch count really bugged me, but I pressed on and I’m glad I did because it wasn’t a biggie after all.
It’s funny even though I wasn’t trying to match the socks they ended up pretty matchy. I used a different yarn for the heels so as not to disrupt the striping. I’ve never done this before. I find now that I’ve been knitting longer these little things are starting to matter. For the cuffs I did the roll under cuff thingy. I have no idea what its called.
Someone tell me what this cuff is called please. I guess Google could tell me. Google is my bestie.
They look quite wrinkly without my fat feet don’t they? The yarn is Fishknits Strong Heart. The color is called Pink and Grey. Thats about it for now. Happy Holidays Y’all.
