I must be a crazy person for making these - knee high socks on 2.5mm sticks, with a very detailed cable pattern which ultimately travels down the leg and across the foot...but oh my, what a lovely pair of socks it will make! In soft squooshy Patonyle.That is, after I let it out of the naughty corner. After ploughing through the 2.5 inches of 1x1 twisted rib (why, o why, Cookie A, must you torture us so!) and then flying through 2.5 inches of stocking stitch, I immediately mucked up the fancy cable (I blame the pattern - why write it as if it is knitted flat when it is clearly knitted in the round!). So after a night in time out, and the insertion of a lifeline, it was frogged back to the end of the plain portion.
And it still sits in the naughty corner (although I have put it back on the needles). When it wakes up to itself and decides to work, then I'll pick it up again. I just hope I can read the pattern properly this time around...And yes, I am trying to ignore the fact that clearly my calves and legs are h-u-g-e. I could kind of ignore that when I was using the teeny tiny 30cm addi circular, but when I changed to 2 circs, it showed the magnitude of my leg size in all it's glory. Sigh...
In case you are going to be in the Southern Highlands this Easter long weekend, Wool Addiction in Bowral will be open from 10-2 on Saturday, Sunday and Monday (husby and I just may need to have a road trip on Sunday - what a great excuse to get out of the house and go for a lovely drive!)
