ugh!!!

Published by Meghan at 11:02 pm under knitting

bellatrix are officially going to be frogged and forgotten! i moved one over to scrap yarn and decided to knit enough so i could turn the heel tonight on one sock….but the dang sock is SO BIG it looks ridiculous! the heel cinches it in a TON and it’s just baggy anywhere else….the dropped stitches just make it all so loose!!! i’m going to frog, and just cast on a really SIMPLE sock pattern and call it a day! i’m even thinking about giving up on the yarn for a bit and moving to a new color. something less related with stress!!!! any suggestions on a nice simple sock pattern? i’m thinking maybe a 3×1 rib…..what do you think??

    I recommend the Simple Sock pattern from Cat Bordi’s Socks Soar on Two Circular Needles. I think that this pattern is just what she says: “You could spend the rest of your life knitting just this simple sock pattern…” I have made it many times and have never been disappointed. I almost always switch to the smaller heel for the more durable sole. I think that this pattern is terrific for showcasing really pretty sock yarns. I like that the ribbing helps the sock cling to the foot – no sagging. IMHO, try it!!!

    OOPs, I meant smaller needle size for the more durable sole. Sorry

    If you want something quick and nice looking try a garter st rib. It’s a 2 row 4 st repeat.
    row 1- knit
    row 2- k2 p2
    Everyone that’s seen this sock (I’ve got a pic on ravelry and my blog) likes it.

    Hi Meghan:

    I love your podcast and upload every new episode. Thank you for sharing your life and family with me. Hang in there with your spinning, you will get so proficient at it that in a few years you’ll look back and wonder why you ever had a problem with it at all.

    Socks. I recommend that you find a basic sock pattern and then make it your own. I like the Ann Budd basic socks in her book Getting Started Knitting Socks. Then chang the ribbing, add cables or lace stitches. Make it uniquely yours.

    As for socks that are too loose around the foot there are 2 solutions for that.

    1. When coming off the cuff ribbing down size a little by decreasing an even number of stitches. this will make the foot smaller starting right at the heel. If you need the heel room then decrease and addition number of even stitches when doing the foot gusset and redistribute the stitches around the needles (I use DPNs).

    2. Maintain the same number of stitches on the needle(s) but continue the ribbing down the top of the foot to just before the toe decreases then switch back to stockingette. I like my socks snug around my foot and frequently add ribbing to make them fit the way I like.

    Please visit my blog and leave me a message.

    Hugs and Prayers
    Lee

    Definitely frog. Your knitting should be your pleasure – not such a big pain. You can always attempt the bellatrix another day… or year even! :) I frogged the pretty Slippery Socks from knitty’s latest. I love the pattern and will likely do it one day, but these were turning out huge too. I’d never knitted a pair of socks for myself (others have always been gifts) and was getting frustrated that 1) these were taking so long with all the cabling and 2) I was going to have to start over again because they were so huge. So I frogged and did a simple pattern…

    and then the colors on the yarn I was using pooled up so ugly that now I have one completed sock and don’t think I’ll make the other. I think I’ll donate or swap or something with the other ball. So, now I’m just waiting for my sock yarn (a SOLID color) to arrive in the mail so I may FINALLY be able to put on a pair of my own socks. Whew.

    I FEEL your pain, sister! :)

    I am glad you frogged them! I learned to knit socks from the Knitty Gritty “knitting a circle” which may be the same as the Yarn Harlot one you mentioned. From that I know that I can cast on 60 stitches, with a size one needle and go to town with a 3/2 rib and whatever else I want later, and they always, always fit me.

    When I try new patterns I try to stay within just a few stitches of 60. Even 64 gets too big, but I then go down to a zero.

    You know about the Sock Knitters website, right? It is also a yahoo group and I think they have a group on Rav, too. They have great tutorials.

    I look forward to hearing Happy Sock Stories next podcast! :) Kathy

    I think that it’s a great idea to do something simple. I like doing simpler patterns when I’m super busy or over-stressed, too. Just mindless knititng is a good thing sometimes. :)
