Because I never learn from my mistakes...

Hi Karen!

Because you asked, allow me to introduce you to my socks. I tried them on yesterday.

Padded footlets

I like the colours. The gray is nice and simple and the contrasting black band is great. The lace pattern is pretty. I love the heel. The pattern is from the Summer 2005 Interweave Knits. It's a PITA to knit (see this post). But I like the idea.

However, trying them on made me realise something might be amiss. So I tried something.

Problem detected

They're loose. Really loose. I could fit a fist in with my foot loose.

I got gauge! I swear!

So off to the frog pond they went.

And this is what they look like now.

Current state of affairs

The teeny picture size is to reflect how big I feel for knitting the same pattern twice and frogging it twice.

I need something new to knit.

Maybe the third time is the the charm? What yarn is it? Looks lovely.

And now I have to add that sock to my list of to dos. Thankyouverymuch. :)

Oh that's too bad you had to frog them, they were looking good too. But what good are socks you can't wear huh! :)

Oh, well. . . just think of all of the patience and beginner's mind you get to learn.

Doesn't help?

Yeah, I didn't think it would. Sorry.
