Last year I made a list of 50 things I wanted to do by the time I turn 50. One of the items on the list was to knit a pair of socks.
I am not an expert knitter in fact I am a complete beginner. I learnt to do a knit stitch as a child but it was only less than 18 months ago that I actually learnt to pearl. The only things I have knitted are a pair of wrist warmers and a couple of hats.
During the past 6 weeks I have purchased/been given a number of balls of sock yarn with the intention of knitting those socks.
I’ve started with some Regia self striping yarn:
If you look closely there is a little mistake in the rib on the right side where the blue and dark beige colours meet. But I carried on knitting.
But then I noticed a mistake in the blue stripe, no wait, I noticed 2 mistakes. Here I sit with a sock that has a teeny tiny mistake in the rib which is not really noticeable but 2 larger mistakes that scream out at me. What do I do?
Try and frog back bearing in mind I am useless at doing that without starting all over again. Then I have the problem of the stitch marker. I need to go back about 10 rows.
Use this as a test sock and buy another ball of yarn. I’m quite sure when I get to turning the heel there will be issues too.
What should I do with this current sock?
Can you offer any advice?
