@#$& Socks

I started on Skew back in June and it’s been a little slow going. I think that as much as I like knit socks and love sock yarn, I’m not the biggest fan of knitting socks. It’s the size of the yarn and needles. It’s all so small that my hands tire out quickly and it all takes forever.

Skew is a bit tricky. Everything is done on an angle and it’s an untraditional heel. That meant by the time I got the heel together and understood the beauty of the construction, I realized I knit the foot about an inch too long. Yup, time to frog a bit. At least I can look at it as practice and tweak a couple spots. It’s going to be worth it–these will be very pretty.
