Too bad the pattern repeat is off – whether through my misunderstanding or a failure to communicate it correctly. This pair is the first one that I’ve not used the book I learned from and it’s written somewhat differently.
All ready to try again
I decided to create a page for my socks with the method/needles/and finished pairs so if you’re interested, check out the tab at the top of the page. I did finish the 3rd pair today and posted a photo of them there.
