On the Needles October 19,2012

I gave up (for a while) on my #1 pair of Opal socks.  The first sock is finished and the second sock is 80% complete-BUT, there is a mistake in the pattern-UGH!!!!

It can't be very noticeable if I got so far without noticing it.  But, the socks were to be a gift soooooo... I'm putting them aside before I decide which way to go on them.

In the meantime, I am almost finished with Opal pair #2, sock #1.  This is another Opal sport sock yarn but it feels "nicer" then the first pair I worked on.  Sometimes I think the dye effects the feel of yarn and fabric.

I am using the Jeck pattern by Regina Satta, free on Ravelry.

  1. Sorry about your first pair. i am liking the second pair you started.

  2. Finding an error is SO annoying, especially when you're that far along. Your second pair is very nice. Love the colors!

  3. Oh, that's want to gift your best work, but if you can't really notice....

  4. Finding a mistake is always frustrating...I'd put it aside and think about what to do too. Love the skein you're knitting ..pretty color.

    You left a comment on my blog about the ribbing on my sock. I do a P1 K1 through the back loop. As I vaguely remember its called a twisted ribbing...I read that somewhere ...I like the look of the ribbing and it moves quicker for me.
