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.

I resisted for a while but I eventually fell down the crochet hole and cast on a scrappy blanket! I have so many leftover sock yarns and m...
I'm back!!!!! It's not like me to blog two days in a row but I really wanted to share my *new* sewing box. I'd been searching f...
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
So sorry that you had to start over! :( I am sure that you will get it this time :)
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.
