Thomas Henry keeping me company while I knit on my socks
I have started the second pair of socks and have had a multitude of problems so far. I found that I was getting ladders down the sides of my socks where the stitches were carried from one needle to the other. I tried looking it up in all my knitting books, but everything I read was of no help with my problem. I have always knitted my socks on double pointed needles with no problems with ladders. I finally figured out a solution on my own, but had to unknit back about 6 inches, then knit it all over again. I knitted as far as the heel stitches and started to bind them off and oh my, I somehow dropped a couple of stitches. I ripped back to the first decrease and redid the heel. I am now working on the ribbed leg of the first sock.
This is my solution for telling the front from the back.
I bought som more sock yarn, as though I need more, because I liked the idea of these two colors together.
I decided I needed a break for scones and tea!
