the sock curse continues


snowflake sock
Originally uploaded by swandive00.

this is my snowflake sock. ’tis frogged by now. see, but this time, it wasn’t a boredom with socks issue…

the problem is with stupid addi. their addi naturas US2 are 3mm, whereas a standard US2 is 2.75 mm. so when i’d put it on and it was baggy, this is why. however, unbeknownst to me, i have an addi turbo in a US2. why the turbos are 2.75mm and not the naturas is a little beyond me. however, the join in the naturas was precisely the right size to catch every.single.stitch that crossed over it.

anyhow, i recast for the snowflake sock earlier and did 2 whopping rows of the cuff.

i can’t let myself say i’m not a sock knitter until i COMPLETE a whole entire pair and make that decision. i’m also holding out until i can knit a pair of fun little kneesocks that will hopefully be large enough to be tight around my dainty little ankles without cutting off circulation to my gigantic filipino calves. maybe even striped (the socks, not the calves). who knows?

(and i’m about 2″ inches into the final sleeve on rogue v.2. woot!)

  2. i feel a new tagline coming on…
