Starting Over

 This was supposed to be a post about finishing up two pairs of socks.

 Instead it's about when knitting attacks.

 When I put the stripeys on the sock blockers I found this. A dropped stitch. I NEVER drop stitches but apparently I did. Right in the blankety blank gusset.

 I had no choice. Rip, rip, rip.

It's too hot for socks now anyway. I'll take my time on this one and get it right.


  1. This must be annoying! Sorry.

  2. Arrrrrrrrrrgh! Things like that are maddening!

  3. Now that's a big irritation! I would have left the sock and done a repair with some duplicate stitching on the inside! Go for it!

  4. Bummer! Wish there were a better solution, but you had to do it.....

  5. Aww. Oops sorry. I always drop stitches! Don't feel too bad. As long as you can pick up all the stitches without issues, you'll be back to the cast off in now time

  6. You, my friend, are a perfectionist! I would have used a length of yarn to catch the drop stitch and fudge the gusset. I admire your patience!

  7. I know that's frustrating. I drop stitches too, usually more with worsted or sport weight yarn for some reason. You'll be done again before you know it. And the process is part of the journey!

  8. Oh that's soooo frustrating!
    I just had to rip out a good chunk of a shawl becuase I'd dropped a stitch too far back to ladder up, I feel your pain!
