Practice Makes Perfect...Right?

Well after countless hours of ripping, frogging, throwing, spitting, swearing and displaying all behaviors associated with rage, self-pity and unhappiness...I present you with my first sock...fondly known as the Sock From Hades.

It started out nice and slow...getting a good feeling from the DPN's...I decided to knit on 4 instead of 5. The cuff went well, the leg even better and I even knit the heel and turned it beautifully. Picking up stitches proved to be a challenge and so did decreasing properly....and the toe decreases...well they were a breeze. I THOUGHT I had the Kitchener stitch down until....

And then my cat ate the cuff. Yes, that's right...ate it. He took a big chunk out of the top...and yes, he's still alive...I have a picture to prove it even.

After several hours at my LYS with the saintly owner, Denise, I came home with a cuff that was still not bound off. Here is what she looks like now: click to make larger

My friend, Jenny is coming over tomorrow to help me out...we are going to see if we can bind off with enough stretch so I can fit this bad boy over my very tree trunk like calf muscle and hopefully fix the Kitch-Stitch too. Wish me luck.

Note to self: There is a flash on your camera for a reason.

The sock looks great! Levi looks so innocent in that picture, like he's saying, "who, me?"
