I've been working on Cookie A.'s Pomatomus socks from Knitty.com.
AND IT'S KILLING ME!!!!
It's not really a complicated pattern, but the chart has you frequently yarn overing at the beginning or end of the needles, leading to dropped YO's. I would do fine up to row 13 where everything changes, and I'd drop those damn stitches every time. I knit and tinked this sock so many times, I should have a couple of pairs by now. I finally got things sorted out and put in a lifelilne and things are going much more smoothly.
Here's some pictures. First the cuff:
Here's one full set of Chart A. There are 3 repeats of 22 rows and I screwed up row 13 on each of them.
I finally got through the leg and heel and have begun on the gussets:
I'm using Artyarns Ultramerino 4, and even though the yardage is comparable to the suggested yarn, I'm fearful I won't have enough to finish this sock. So help me, if that happens, I'm frogging it and never knitting a Pomatomus again. I mean, I'm not a quitter, but this is more abuse than one knitter should take.
Wow. I feel better getting that off my chest.
