Well I finished #1 Son's sock Saturday night like I hoped. Had him try it on. It was tight. UGH! I stretched it out a bit on his foot and he said it felt better. I made him wear it for abt 1/2 hour to see how it would feel after he wore it for a bit. He said it felt great but when I looked at it, the back of the heel was UNDER his heel instead!
How it is possible that this is the 2nd pair of socks that I've tried to make for this kid and IT DOESN'T FIT!! I even measured his foot to make sure that it was long enough. The only thing I can figure is that I can't add negative ease to his socks. He has a VERY wide foot and I think he needs that extra bit to help with the stretch around his foot.
Here is what the sock looks like.
I tried it on Baby Girl and of course it fit her fine! I was going to make a matching one for her, but there are some things abt this sock I'm not happy with. The gusset was a bit wonky, but as long as it looked ok on, I wasnt going to worry abt it. Well the gusset looks fine, but there are ladders on both sides of the heel!! I'm gonna have to rip it all out.
So I'm not doing well with the vest and the sock isnt working. Now what? I cast on for The Red Scarf Project. Twice. I was NOT having a good knitting night. I finally got it right and got into a nice groove.
Apparently I don't do so well on things that HAVE to get done. I still want to get the vest done, but I need to take a break from it for a bit. And I will probably do another pair of socks before I do another pair for #1 Son.
And I think Maggie will be coming out to play.
