Sometimes this is just the way it goes



I accidentally erased the first tinking ... I tried and tried to do a pattern of some sort on this sock, but it just wasn't right, so I tinked it all back and started over twice. Then I decided this sock really just wanted to be stockinette after all.....so fine, I was liking it just fine. Then, I discovered a split stitch. Really, I'm sure it would have been just fine, but since these are a gift, my conscience just wouldn't let me go on....so I decided to drop the stitch down and pick it back up. Easy enough most times, but not today. This yarn splits easily, although I still like it. Sooooo........now we have this:





haha......Oh well, I want them to be right. I'm not discouraged. (really, I'm not.....) I just pray these don't become like the "beloved" socks I made for hubby. Those became such a trial that I had to go through huge attitude adjustment and in the end, they became known as the "beloved" socks. He loves them, so yep, it's worth it.

its always worth ripping out if you aren't happy...the bunny i made for easter was ripped out 3 times before he reached perfect cuteness & that doesn't count his arms & ears. i'm working on a new doll for whiplash & have already ripped back twice as well.

Aww I'm sorry that things didn't seem to work out with that sock so far. I think Kat is right though, best to tink back or rip out if you aren't happy. Otherwise when you finish it you still probably won't be happy with them.

Thanks for the nice comment on my blog :o) I'll book mark yours and be back again!

I've had many socks that ended up looking like that! Several of which are still in the bottom of my closet.

Oooh, what a mess! Patience and perserverance, that's what it will take. Good luck!

I've been having trouble with my latest socks which are gifts as well. I frogged them back several times to fix mistakes that he probably would have never noticed. LOL!
