I was on a road trip this weekend and took along a sock project. Thank goodness I also took along my Backyard Leaves. If you followed that link, you will see that I started the scarf on another road trip in April. It has sat untouched ever since we got home.
Do you know how dusty a project can get just sitting around for four months?
So dusty that I ripped the whole thing out and started over – funnily enough, I am at the fourth pattern repeat just like that picture!
Anyway – back to the socks. I had wanted to try the technique of knitting both socks at the same time. Sockbug has a tutorial on her site. It seems simple enough – until you try it!
I don’t know what the problem is — I get to the point where I cast on the remaining stitches for the first sock and I seem to fall apart!
Does anyone know what I am doing wrong? Is this techinique only suitable for one type of cast on? I am using an alternate cable cast on – Is that it – can this be done only with the long tail? it’s my only guess …..
