Katherine the Great
I like to think of myself as a storyteller. Mostly I tell stories about knitting.

I felt like a genius for coming up with this pattern (Vanessa antiopa Socks) and colorway pairing and getting them to play nice… until I reached the heel. After turning the heel, yarn started pooling in a Kermit-like manner on top of the sock (a lot of green). (note: I gave up on the dpn’s with this pattern and switched to circular needles – there was some laddering and I finally decided it was not worth it.)

Muppet Sock 1

Once I got down to 66 stitches, the color pooling started to behave itself a bit better and things were once again chugging along…..until I realized that I did not actually read the pattern and was supposed to have continued row ONE of the chart all the way through the gusset decreases. Well, crap.

Muppet Sock 2

I must frog. This makes me think of Kermit again.

Muppet Socks 3

Ok. Row one ’til I finish the decreases. check. Now, onto the foot AND the rest of the chart. In spite of the false starts, I still think these socks are a quick fun knit.

    I smiled when you referenced Kermit with frogging. ;) The sock has a nice colorway.

    aw what a shame, hope you don’t have to frog too much. They look lovely and I’m sure they’ll be worth it when they’re finished :)

    I totally love it. Kermit-like or not.

    And to me, you’re a genius whether you came up with that pattern or not.
