Some days you knit, some days you frog





This was as far as I'd gotten in the arch-shaped socks when I decided to compare it against the first. While I harbor no delusions about these two being twins, I wanted to make sure they would be the same, you know, length.

They're not.

The decreases in the second sock are more consistent than the first, and so if I kept decreasing every four rows like I was then it'd be another, oh, eight rows longer. Not so good. So I frogged back to where that needle is sticking out.

It's about the knitting, not the product; it's about the knitting, not the product; it's about the knitting...

The knitting gods can be cruel. I feel your pain.

Arggg! Even more so since they're complicated stranded-and-shaping socks. I empathize for having to rip back, but glad to see you haven't succumbed to throwing sock a dusty corner, as I would certainly have done.

How frustrating! Yes, keep repeating the Process knitter's mantra! Good luck!
