First Sock Knitting Adventure
I've knitting many things since the Etsy store, however, I've never knitted socks. They were intimidating to say the least. To make a flat object go 3-dimensional is not easy to do. There are so many mistakes that you can make and I'm making plenty of of them.
I've learned ho to knit a simple sock without looking at a pattern. That's amazing to me. Because it used to intimidate me so. Now, I can knit a regular sock and not cary around lay decisions.
I have to remember that after picking up stitches for the instep, that I need to do the decreases slowly. Instead of this, I wind up with too step a decrease and it shows in the work. This caused a very visual "mistake" in my work. I know now that I do the decreases every other round instead of every round. Also I went the wrong way a few times which created a purl ridge in the work. IT made a cute design but not something I wanted in my work. However I will keep it in mind in the future.
