I’m knitting some socks. They’re a beautiful mix of bold colors and earthy tones. I found a great pattern that accents the color changes and knits along so quickly. I can see myself wearing these socks with my off-white hi-top chucks on the plane to New Orleans to visit my quirky and fun friends that will appreciate sock nonsense. They will think I am fabulous.
Here’s the problem: I could fit 3 feet into this one sock. I thought size 3 needles would be too big. I thought as I made it past the cuff that it seemed a bit large. I wondered whose foot on this planet needed a heel flap of such large proportions, and were they single?
I almost pulled out the sock. I almost gave it up and got out my trusty US 2 dpn’s to cast on a simple, boring sock.
So I checked the Rav link for the pattern to see if anyone else had such problems. Nope. They are all wearing their socks. A few opted for a smaller needle, but the ones that were knit with US 3 look just fine. I’m going to go with it. Am I in denial, or just hopeful?
