Not quite…

I have a new sock. It’s far from perfect, and it’s a result of trial and error (less trial, much  more error…), but it’s still a sock. I don’t know if it will ever get a partner, but I hope so.DSC02286ok

The back side is a big problem. It wasn´t a very good idea to use the same size needles for both the fair isle front, and the ribbed back, which is also knitted in a completely different yarn. I knew this from the start, while watching the backside grow and grow and get bigger and bigger compared to the front. But knitter’s denial is a powerful thing. “Surely this will fix itself after blocking!” Nope, it didn’t.  DSC02290ok

So a tiny note to self. Next time, frog! Rip it out before too much knitting has been done and it feels like an impossible task. Really!
