It’s All Coming Back To Me

I know the photo is awful. It’s dark outside and I’m compensating badly. Consider the photo proof of life of the sock.

I’ve completed the ribbing and 15 rows of the leg. That means I’ve knit 4 buttonholes which may be the easiest part of this pattern.

Way back when I bought this kit the pattern was confusing. Someone on Ravelry who knit it took meticulous notes and filled in some of the vague areas. Then the designer did an update on the pattern. She gifted those that bought the pattern with the updated pattern. Unfortunately for me I am still a little confused by some of the vague bits. I find this just frustrating enough to make knitting this unpleasant.

I’m just knitting as many rows as I can tolerate. The minute I get the urge to scream and throw something across the room I finish that row and put it away. I made it all they way through 5 rows today. These socks are going to take a while.

  1. Looking good!
    I have one of those patterns, too. One of these days (or years) I’ll get back to it. Maybe.

  3. Have you ever heard of the Onerva shawl? I have started and ripped that sucker out so many times that I finally shoved it in a drawer and said I’d get back to it someday. The pattern is just a hot mess. Now I feel like pulling it out so I can share your misery. The only good thing about it is that it taught me the value of a life line

    I love the pattern. If what you knit is not exactly what the pattern intended, as long as you are consistent it is all good.

    Why torture yourself? I like to think that the purpose of knitting is to relax and make something fun.

  7. What’s that saying about not letting the perfect be the enemy of the good? Make the pattern work for you; take notes so sock #2 matches. It is beautiful so far, and yes, I’d stop if I was getting to wanting to throw it across the room, too!

    I don’t know…just the thought of buttons/holes on socks makes me want to throw something! hahaha! That is a super neat looking pattern.

    I hope it gets easier as you go, I have some I put in time out once in a while as well. Figure some day I will have a better frame of mind or at least a new frame of mind even if it isn’t better lol.
