Knitting Olympics - II
You met my socks
They're being knit for someone else...
That's right, I'm knitting my Sockapaloooza socks for the Knitting Olympics.
My tardiness with the Stitch Ya Neck Out exchange was something I would very much like not to repeat, so I am doing everything in my power to ensure that this project is completed well in advance of the deadline.
Look at it this way, even if I don't earn a gold medal button, I'll have a significant head-start on my socks.
Either way I win.
That said, I'm really hoping the darn socks start to behave a little better. Having to cast on 3 times is not really my idea of an auspicious beginning.
What's wrong with this picture??
That's right, six needles instead of the standard 5, one of them broken. No, I don't know how it happened. Thankfully Peacock had an extra set in the very same size so I've traded out the wounded teammember and continued knitting.
Here's the current score:
Leg: completed (6 repeats instead of the 7 called for in the pattern).
Heel Flap and Turn: completed (15 slip sts along selvage instead of 17 in pattern).
Gusset: barely begun, but going smoothly.
