A Blast From the Past

Oh, yes I did!

A few days back, I asked for advice on a sock I was knitting for my son.  I took the advice of the majority, which was to start over.  If the sock bothered me that much in the early stages, it would always bother me.

So I did.

I unraveled the sock and started over.  I went from stranded knitting on 5 dpns (black needles, no less…) to knitting on one long circular.  I scrapped the stranded pattern for a solid yellow sock with the Hufflepuff mascot done in duplicate stitch.  So far, I have this:

The knitting is neater, the ribbing is tighter and my stitches are more even.  Overall, I am very pleased with the decision.  It isn’t going to be the fancy-pants design I dreamed of, but it will be a sock I can be proud to say I made!

Thanks to everyone who sounded in, I appreciate your input.

Oh, by the way…I was not willing to try my first magic loop sock AND stranded knitting at the same time.  You’ll have to wait for that momentous event.
