Ways in which I have sucked mightily making these socks:
- Lost most of the original instructions, but was saved through the amazing generosity and kindness of the author.
- Knit half a sock leg in my normal twisted stitch (how the twisted stitch became my normal one is a story for another day) and found out that cables look not so great in twisted stitch. Did not want to rip. Knit second half of sock leg in flat stitch.
- Used #4 needles on ribbing as decreed. Switched to #6 for leg also as decreed...for knee socks. I am knitting the short sock. I was supposed to stick with the #4's.
- Started knitting second sock's leg. The ribbing looks TOTALLY different in flat stitch. Do I redo it in my twisted stitch? Or do I just keep knitting because these are already not going to be anyone's present this year.
- I have already decided to knit this leg in #6's because I'm NOT reknitting the other leg. I'M JUST NOT.
WAIT!! WAIT!! Perhaps I haven't screwed up as bad as I thought. I can knit the knee sock!
No, wait again. I already did the fireplacing decreases for the ankle shaping. I'd have to rip about 2 inches and then knit 10 more......
Help me, internets, you're my only hope.
