Let’s talk one more time about…
A sock (or in this case, a pair of a specific socks).
Pretty, blue socks. Handcrafted by yours truly, all for the sake of becoming a better knitter than before in order to reach my goal.
I’ve heard the rumors.
In fact, I’m pretty sure that everyone who ever decide to make their own pair of socks runs into this problem. Yes, I’m talking about the one, the only…
No, that’s not me holding the socks weird. That’s actually the size difference between the first sock I made (the one in the back) and the second one (the one in the front).
I’m not too sure how this happened (actually, I know exactly how it happened. It has to do with the fact that I saw the light at the end of the tunnel and ran for it without realizing that I just forwent about 1/2 an inch). But I know for a fact that a lesson has been learned.
Now, whether this lesson is:
- I’m never going to knit socks again (unlikely)
- I’m going to be more careful when using dpns (potential)
- I’m going to wait until I get two circular needles to make another sock ever (possible)
I do not know.
But one thing for sure, I’m going to try some other knitting projects before giving socks another try. Build my confidence back up, if you will. After all, there’s not much in the world that kills an ego like mismatched socks.
