THAT has brought me to the edge of my knitting sanity, right there. See all them stitches??? That’s WAY too many. I really did it this time.. I haven’t jacked up a sock like this since my first pair. I FORGOT TO TURN THE #%$#% HEEL!!!
When did I realize this?? AFTER I’d picked up the gusset stitches and worked a few rounds of the pattern. Mind you, I had this pair on one circ. I had to take a sock off and put it onto a second circ(thank you SpinnDiva, for being cool on the side!), so I could pick up the gussets individually and then somehow get the socks back onto the same circ, facing the same way.
All these freakin stitches, and I ended up having to use stitchmarkers to make sure I did the decreases in the right spot for the first few rounds. THAT’s when it hit me, no heel turn. Got Damn It. Oh, and did I mention I’d cut the yarn because it was getting tangled up with the yarn from the other pair, back when I had two pairs on one circ? Yeah.
I’m sorry. This is it. I’m ripping these socks, and they’re not getting knit. Perhaps the Crusoe gods are mad cause I totally reorganerized their pattern. Hell if I know. I just know this yarn is going to become something else. Mother@##@$er.
