Look At This
Here it is. The sock I've been knitting this week. It's Evelyn A. Clark's Go With The Flow Socks. I'm using the recommended yarn, Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Solids and the recommended needles, size US1. Of course, I didn't check the gauge ahead of time. It seems pretty close, but the row gauge is off some. It takes fewer rows to get the length so I've just been knitting to the stated length instead of the number of rows called for. That was fine until I came to the heel flap, then I realized I would need to knit all the rows so I could pick up the right number of stitches later. So, the heel flap may be too long and I don't know how that will effect the fit. There was probably a way to work it out, but I don't have enough experience knitting socks to tackle that one yet. So, the doubts are going through my mind with every stitch...Will it fit? Will I have enough yarn? Why didn't I make the leg shorter?...But, isn't that the way it is with all new patterns? It's still a fun sock to knit and in the end I think it will all work out. Here's a close up of the cuff and the lace pattern (which will show up better when worn).
