Next Step Sock Knit-a-long........Week 2.

Hello there, just a quick post today, it's week 2 of  Crafts from the Cwtch Knit-a-long, and I haven't got much to show you...........


You might be thinking that I'm on my second sock but you would be wrong, this is the first sock that I started last week.

I was nearly to the toe when I realised my sock didn't look like the photo on the pattern, I still had the lovely diamond rib but no pattern inside of it. I had to frog the lot as the pattern was just too complicated to go back so many rows.

I was gutted, as I spent many hours on them, I love the pattern so I have started again. I'm just hoping it was my mistake and not the pattern because if I do all that knitting again and it's still wrong, I think I might throw them through the window.

Haha, it's suppose to be my stress free hobby, anyway fingers crossed, I'll have a sock finished by next week. My husband said, wouldn't it be easier to buy a pair from Primark !!!! Men, they just don't get it !!!!


Check out everyone else's progress, this week, here.

Have a great weekend.

Oh I hope so too!!! I hate it when that happens - I once knitted to the end of an entire 'poncho' pattern with only a shoulder-length garment before realising that I was knitting on the wrong needles and had to frog the whole thing! (I will hasten to add that I hadn't been knitting long at that point!)

Best of luck with the second attempt xxx

Oh I do hope its not an error in the pattern, such a bummer having to frog all that way but by next week you'll have it done just wait and see !

Hope is was just a small error and not a pattern problem!! That pattern does look so gorgeous!!
Good luck xx

Oh what a nuisance that must have been Deb! But hopefully it's worth it in the end once it's finished. And don't worry, my DH would react the same as yours ;-) Have an enjoyable weekend, Ira x

Oh no! I'm sorry that happened. Chalk it up to an oopsies. it will look more fantastic than the first sock which is the upside.

Oh my goodness ... never mind ... I know they will be lovely in the end ... and no ... men just don't get it!

I really feel your pain. I had to frog my second because I was knitting the leg from the first chart again - it's a mirrored design. I hope it works out for you this time! Thankfully, my husband 'gets' it as he's had a few pairs knitted for him and he's always asking for more.
