I'm Staying Inside

Yes the weather outside is frightful.

But the knitting is so delightful.

I decided to rip out the sock I showed you guys a couple post back because 7 inches into the foot it started to look like this.

Pretty ginormous for even a man's foot. Look!

The former sock fitting loosely on my boyfriend's foot.

Needless to say I really like how the sock is coming along now.

This is not the first time I've tried to knit this pattern in stockinette. Many moons ago (pre blog) I knit some socks for myself using this Knitty pattern. Second time around, the same thing happens: MASSIVE socks that would not fit an elephant's foot let alone a woman's.

Therefore I have officially black listed this pattern for simple stockinette socks because the stitch is too loose and you'll end up with a huge sock. But as you can see highly textured stitches make for a very snug, beautiful foot covering.

I'm going to eat dinner. Oh yeah, Happy New Year everyone!
