I guess these are turning into kind of a pain, but it’s not a big deal. I knit the same way I read – rush, rush, rush to finish and then when I’m done, I’m like, “What next?” The majority of the pleasure of knitting is in the knitting for me, not the finishing, so I don’t really mind unraveling and reknitting and unraveling and reknitting right now. I will get the pattern exactly how I want it and then the second sock will be a breeze! Besides, why rush to complete wool thigh-high stockings when it’s finally getting warm out?
I actually typed that up earlier this afternoon, and I have since got a bunch more knitting done. I have gotten to the lower part of the calf and am decreasing yet again.
