I thought the second appley sock was going to be boring after that first hiccup, but at some point, I lost track of where I was in the chart and all of a sudden, I had an extra row of zigs where there should have been zags. Not to worry, I ripped a couple of rows and all was right with the world again.
I must confess that I love these little socks. I don’t know if it was the yummy yarn or the smooth pattern or that people far and wide have been admiring them or fond thoughts of the person they’re going to live with, but even with the rough patches, I really enjoyed knitting these lovelies. I felt like a process knitter for once in my life.
