My Current Work In Progress

Today I thought I would look at my current work in progress. It's a pair of socks I start making for my daughter but she wasn't happy with them so now they are going to my hubby. I was a bit surprise really that he said he would have them, I thought the colour would be too bright for him!

I've chosen a simple Garter Rib stitch for this pair of socks, I like to keep my sock stitches simple as it makes for easy sock knitting. The Garter Rib stitch pattern is made up of two rows: Row 1: K2, P2,
Row 2: Knit. How easy is that!

So I wanted to ask a quick question. Beginner sock knitters may not suffer from this but some seasoned sock knitters might. Do you suffer with second sock syndrome? I myself don't usually suffer with this problem but I have found with this pair I'am a bit. When this happens to you, what do you do? I myself try and just push through it and just knit, knit, knit. But with this pair it's not happening.

So if your a beginner sock knitter be warned this could happen to you, so be prepared. Also I always keep a note book with all my sock details in it. This way I can keep track and I know exactly where I'm at. I mark down every row I knit, so this way all my socks are always the same as each other. I sometimes found when I first started knitting socks that I couldn't quiet get the pairs to match. But now because I do it this way they are always a perfect pair. I have been doing it this way for a very LONG time. I have gone through a few note books!

 So here's hoping I can get back into finishing this pair of socks for my hubby and he will soon end up with a new pair of socks. Hopefully in the not too distant future I will be posting with an update on a finished pair of socks! Have a good weekend.

Happy Knitting
