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

I started knitting toe up socks based on the Amenable pattern by Hunter Hammersen. I went toe up because I only had one hank of yarn and wanted the socks to be as tall as possible. But, I’m having issues. Try to be surprised. I have an even number of stitches on the top of the sock and an even number of stitches on the bottom, but the pattern is based on a 2 stitch repeat. So, I’m trying to figure out if I want to add an extra stitch on top of the foot and have knit 1, purl 1, knit 1 OR just have the pattern start on a knit 1 and end on a purl 1*….Neither option is really sitting well with my mild OCD.

Then, I visited Gauge Knits and they had another skein of the yarn! I swear it wasn’t there last week. So, now, I feel like the universe is telling me to just knit the pattern as designed. What do you think?
* The pattern is actually much more fun to knit than plain old ribbing, but this seemed the easiest way to explain my quandary.
