I haven’t been posting but I have been knitting, and here’s the proof, a finished pair of socks.
pattern:Ã‚Â CIC Toddler Sock
yarn:Ã‚Â Kraemer Yarns Mauch Chunky – 100% wool
needles:Ã‚Â Clover Bamboo US8
started:Ã‚Â Ã‚Â April 18thÃ‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â finished: April 19th
notes:Ã‚Â Knit as written, but extended 2×2 ribbing down the instep.Ã‚Â Love this pattern, so quick to knit up.
I actually knit up the CIC socks to take a break from the evil socks from hell.Ã‚Â I had a plan:Ã‚Â I hadÃ‚Â one skein of Silja sock yarn in yellow to knit up socks for the daughter.Ã‚Â I knew I wouldn’t be able to make long socks but I planned on making ankle socks with one repeat of theÃ‚Â Fancy Silk (Knit VintageÃ‚Â Socks)Ã‚Â pattern on the leg, no problem.Ã‚Â
I got stupid.Ã‚Â
I decided I had enough yarn to knit two repeats, so I knit two 12 row repeats, finished the sock, weighed it, weighed the remaining yarn, looked at the sock, “wow” I thoght “that foot looks really long, I bet it’s too long and I’ll have to shorten the foot, then I will have plenty of yarn for the second sock.”Ã‚Â
I had daughter try on the sock.Ã‚Â It. Fit. Perfectly.Ã‚Â It could not have fit better if I had knit it onto her foot, really, it was that perfect.Ã‚Â Shit!Ã‚Â Now I don’t have enough yarn.Ã‚Â I knit up the second sock with ONE repeat in the leg and had to borrow from the first sock to finishe the last few rows of the toe.Ã‚Â Now I have to rip back to the first repeat in the leg of the first sock and reknit the rest of it.
oh, well, it’s about the process . . . right?
