Can I tell ya how much I love sock knitting? An astute friend observed that it’s just my ADD and this is my shiny object du jour, but I still love it nonetheless. I really expected it to feel like it was going slower, but the progress does come pretty quickly. I’m using 3.25 mm (US #3) so they’re not as small as some sock needles. Maybe that’s why. I’m almost to the heel shaping point:
There’s one tiny thing that’s bothering me though. Has anyone else noticed tiny spots of white in their Koigu? I have 2 or 3 spots on the sock so far. It’s only a stitch or so on each spot, but it’s still bugging me a bit. If you look closely you can see one of them in the second orange stripe from the top, by the ball of my foot. In this case it’s only a half a stitch. Go ahead…tell me I’m just being too picky.
And, when I’m not knitting socks I’ve been knitting Rogue lately. I’m just above the point where you join the pocket back in with the body:
I do love the way this one is coming together. The color is great! I’m still a bit concerned about the vertical bars in the st st but I’m holding to the theory that it will relax once washed a few times. Has anyone else had this issue with single ply yarn and successfully resolved it?
Hmmm….looks like I’m full of criticisms today. In general I’m really happy with the way both of these are progressing. I guess when you spend soooo much time on something you just want it to be perfect.
