Savasana’s Stumble

(Shells:  I thought this was too good a stumble not to post, since we have all been there!  Plus, she did such an awesome write up and photo documentation, it would be a waste if it wasn’t blogged.)

From Sav:

I’ve been a bit behind on updates and that happened for a reason. I made a ridiculously stupid mistake. I didn’t want to post about it until I had it all under control again but I photo documented my little journey into frog land.

So you see the sock. The bottom of the sock to be precise. You might even think it is a nice looking sock. Until you remember that I’m doing a RIBBED pattern!! Yepper, after knitting in the scrap to hold the placement for the heel, I continued in stockinette on half of the sock. The front side is all nice and ribbed….the back side…..not so much! Thus…..I frogged.

And lost two days of knitting. After frogging I couldn’t even face it; picking up the stitches was absolute torture because I have had very very little experience with it and never with such tiny stitches.

Matilda helped by supervising and she didn’t even once tell me how silly I was to do something so ridiculous. But look at that giant ball of yarn! Gah!

But the good news?! I finished the first sock today and it fits my sister beautifully! Hooray!

And I’ve even started the second sock.

I’m going to try to practice project monogamy this week though so that I can finish Friday or Saturday (more likely); I don’t want to rush at the end. I shall try very hard to ignore my Noro scarf that I am thoroughly enamored with, the STR pair for myself….and now that Nick’s socks are essentially finished (whole other horror story there), they won’t distract me either.
