Well, I got my socks done this evening – with one small problem. The colorwork bands are too tight and won’t fit over my heels. D’oh!

I tried to fit them both on several times, then went to the classic next step. “Maybe it will block out!”

It did not block out.


Oh well. I know what I did wrong – I just kept the yarns too tight for the bat section, and also I think I caught the floats too frequently, which does also make for a less flexible fabric. So tomorrow I will be ripping back to the beginning of the colorwork section.

It could be worse! The colorwork was fun to knit, now I get to knit it over again. But looser this time!

How are your projects going?

  1. Oh no! This is why I generally have been scared of colorwork socks. Hopefully you enjoy knitting them the second time around just as much. Iโ€™ve hit the point on my afterthought everything socks where Iโ€™m ready to be done with them, but know I should keep going a little bit longer.

  2. Oops – you are so good to rip back right away – that’s the kind of project that would have had me in an angry tizz and may have been confined to the back of the cupboard. I saw something similar on a craft at a MacMillan coffee morning last month – fingerless gloves with a pattern wrist band – no one could slip them on to try them yet the palms looked like they’d fit ok.
