I was heading down the foot on both of the two socks I have been working on and feeling very smug about it. I was already writing the FO post in my head.
However, when I tried one on I realized in horror that I had forgotten to shape the heel. After working the flap I just picked up the gusset and knit on blissfully unaware of my ginormous boo boo.
I didn't just do that on one. I did that on BOTH of them. Rip, rip, rip.
It didn't take much time to fix the mess but it left me feeling really weirded out over this crazy error times two. I have knit lots of socks-I have 70 plus pairs in my sock bin alone, so how on earth did I do this-TWICE? That's a scary senior moment.
All's well that ends well but now I have kinky balls. I hate kinky balls.
Okay .....I have to laugh over the vision of kink balls. (Yes, my mental age is stalled at about 13).ReplyDelete
Hope the socks are smooth sailing from here on out.
It must have been something in the air! I nearly did the same thing this weekend. I’m working my way down the feet of both socks now. I do love both of your yarn colors.ReplyDelete
Welcome to my world! LOLReplyDelete
So you are human! I think a good mistake needs repeating! lolReplyDelete
When I have to rip out, I like to knit on until I use up the ripped out yarn! I'm glad you found the mistake when you did!
Oh I've done this. More times than I can count. I always do it when I'm feeling quite smug about how well I'm doing. Apparently the universe likes to give me a big slap upside the head.ReplyDelete
Perhaps you got distracted with something else at the time and to cope you just kept knitting. In no time, you have the heel turned and have that kinky yarn all used. Smooth knitting ahead. . .ReplyDelete
I've done it...you're in good company!ReplyDelete
Love the multi-colored sock. You must have been having some interesting conversations or watching some captivating movies when you skipped the heel. Your sock drawer must be a delight.ReplyDelete
I have done the same thing! I have also turned the heel without making any flap by mistake ! Arg! Oh well, more knitting.....ReplyDelete
I giggled like a teenager over 'kinky balls'! :):):)ReplyDelete
You must have been "in the groove"! At least you noticed in time to fix it, right? Fun yarns even with a few kinks.....ReplyDelete
