Knitting by Judy @ 9:51 AM
tags: , ,

I was a very good girl and knit on the mermaid socks while waiting for my oil to be changed. I got about an inch more done. It was enough to see that, while the pattern was nice, the gauge was just not right.

Mermaid socks have been banished to the frog pond.

I’ve started over on E’s socks. There’s a nice lace pattern that I’ve been wanted to try and E seems like a lace person to me. I swatched some of it this morning and I think it will work.

Keep your fingers crossed.

Maybe there’s just something about this yarn that I wasn’t meant to knit.
