One Tiger Sock done
This is the Opal sock yarn I showed last week, knitted up. I think it is fun and tiger-like. Mostly tiger-like. Every once in awhile the strand of yarn sports a red and green for some reason I can't fathom. Have any of you found this is the Opal yarn? I wonder if it is a mistake......
Speaking of mistakes.........there is one dropped stitch on the underside of the heel of this sock. I tacked it down with a tiny thread. I get absolutely disheartened when I see a dropped stitch and can't bear to rip out the sock. I swear I was counting the whole sock. Does this happen to you? How do you fix it. Especially if you plan to give the socks as a gift....which I may.
I knit the sock on 3's with 64 stitches. Used a basic sock cuff down pattern with a round toe finish. Second sock start this afternoon! It is a kitchen work day off. :)
I talk more in the comments!
