So, I finally finished the Owlie socks!
I actually finished them a month ago, and completely forgot to blog about it.
These had a false finish, too.
I was super-excited when I thought I had finished them. I kitchenered the toe, cut the yarn, but before I wove in the ends, a little voice said, “TRY IT ON!”
And I did!
It was… tight. But knit fabric stretches, and I figured my gauge had changed or something.
Then the little voice said, “Hmm… put the other one on.”
That one was comfortable.
Crikey, had my gauge changed THAT much?
I put my feet side-by-side. Took me a moment, but I spotted the problem – I completely omitted a pattern repeat.
I believe it was the Yarn Harlot who said, “Experienced knitters make bigger mistakes faster.” I’m tempted to embroider this on a pillow.
So I ripped back and re-knit, and finished and it was good.
I look forward to wearing these in a few months when the weather cools off!
