Good morning. If you’re new around here, Once Upon A Sock consists of we, sock knitters, who post the first, Thursday of every month about our sock WIP’s. Our Once Upon a Sock family has grown so instead of linking to one another’s blogs like we usually do, Paula of Spin a Yarn is now hosting the link up as she is the original founder of this meme. If you love to knit socks, or are even starting to learn, you are more than welcome to join us. Just download the graphic, compose your post, and link up on Paula’s blog.
It’ll be short and sweet today. I’ve had ups and downs with this first sock. The first, two tries resulted in tight fabric. I was then going to take a break and start a sock for me, but the mommy guilt reared its ugly head. Therefore I cast on for a third time.
It seems third time’s the charm. I am knitting with a US 2 (2.75 mm) and had cast on 56 stitches. I kept worrying it was too big in the beginning (before I started the foot) but my teenager tried it on and said it was fine. I have to remember she has normal feet while mine are unusually narrow and what I call chicken feet because I hardly have any fat on them.
I have already casted on for the next sock, otherwise I’ll end up dragging my feet and get stuck in Second Sock Syndrome. The next sock should go faster as I have all the numbers figured out from sock one.
Are you a shortie sock fan or prefer longer socks to wear? Thanks for poppin’ in today. TTYS.
