You believe me, right? I do know how to knit socks. Last night I finished Addie’s Lucky Charm socks but I made more mistakes in this pair of socks than I think I’ve made in all 75 previously pairs of socks.
In fact, last night, while getting frustrated with the mistakes, I realized that the socks I was wearing were some of my oldest socks. These were finished in January, 2009 . . that’s 10 years ago!
The first mistake I made:
The heel was completely turned and I looked and there was a dropped stitch. Since I was doing two at a time, I ended up with a big mess trying to take the stitches out and finally ended up grabbing a second set of needles. The real problem is that this was all happening while were driving down the road 75 mph.
Then, somehow, getting them back on the one long circular set, I got them on with one facing front and one facing back so I figured I wasn’t going to worry about that. I just kept knitting.
At some point, I totally split up the front stitches and had half of them on the back needle. No idea how I did it because I couldn’t even figure out how to get them back on track . . had to use that second circular needle again. Got them all straightened out and put them back on one long set of needles.
Yes, I am happy to have these finished. I will take a picture of the completed socks after I get the ends woven in.
