sock issues

How many times have you frogged a knitting project before you decided to call it quits? My socks from Lorna's Laces Shepard sock yarn just aren't meant to be. This will be the fourth time that I have started the suckers. And I have to say that I am getting a little perturbed with the whole situation. I am not really sure what happened the last time, but I ended up with way wrong stitches and pulled the knitting back to where everything looked right and then dropped a few stitches while trying to pick them back up. And then everything went to hell in a hand basket and here I sit, with ball of yarn and a few pointy sticks. Again. I am going to give them ONE MORE TRY and if I fail, again, I shall save my beautiful Lorna's Laces yarn for my loom ( I can weave with fine yarns no problem) and knit socks with fat yarns only.

Here they are in all their round glory. Again. The first bit is just a wee spot crinklier than it used to be. Sigh

And in the blog issues, Firefox is working MUCH better than Safari ever did! I have all sorts of choices like text colour, that I never did before! I can even change my font! The only choices that showed up in Safari were spell check, and up load images. And since switching to beta, neither worked. Things are looking up!

Until I looked at a larger version of the photo, I thought the taupe colored sock was one of your completed socks rather than a photo!! Hope this try works for you. Those blues would make lovely socks.

Thanks for the comment on my blog (blogger won't let me see commenter's email addy, or I'd send this directly). I browsed back through your archives, and loves seeing all your weaving!

Don't give up on the socks! Starting is the hardest part... I have froged more beginnings than I can count, but it's SOOOO worth it to have some gorgeous wearable socks made from Lorna's. Just suck it up, forget about perfection, and knit on through the offending areas.
