Socks suck . . .

For some reason socks and I are not getting along. I've made socks before--in fact, I knit our Christmas stockings oh so many years ago . . . mine is pink, Phil's is blue (I actually made them to wear, but they were so perfect for mantle socks that I changed my mind). But lately . . . well, I have three "pair" working and just can't seem to GET THERE . . . to a pair!

1. Supersocke in a pink and brown colorway . . . the needle was too big so I frogged this one . . .

2. Kroy Socks in a blue and green colorway . . . the first sock I made got chewed up by Gracie, the second sock I made is WAY too big, and the third one I made (which I just started frogging) . . . well . . . I cast on 52 stitches instead of 64 (WHY?????? I HAVE NO IDEA!!!!) . . .

3. And MVFF sports weight . . . well, it's definitely a dark (spruce green), winter sock and, well, I just wanted to do socks that could be worn in the near future.

So, there you have it. Three "pair" and nary a sock to be worn. Go figure.
