Notes

Q1 KAL with the STR group. Trying my hand at two-at-a-time cuff down. Wish me luck!

6 Jan 2011: Slow-going but steady. I think I will change to two circulars instead of one long circular as I am worried the stitches will slide off.

20 Jan 2011: finally got some zigzagging action going on

28 Mar 2011: Done with sock #1. Can I finish sock #2 in 3 days?

2 Apr 2011: Epic fail! I missed the deadline. I needed to do 7 repeats down the foot and on the 4th one I realised I had more sts on the sole than the first sock. I went back to the pattern and found out that I completely missed the 5 sets of gusset decreases. DOH! So I frogged back and will start the foot over again. sigh

3 Apr 2011: This sock and I have a love-hate relationship. It loves to drive me nuts and I hate that I let it. I will finish these socks if it’s the last thing I do.

5 Apr 2011: A few days late but it is done!
