Cheryl says I finished my first sock last week and it looks GREAT.

It’s a pity I’m going to have to frog it.

Yup.

You heard me.

I have to rip that sock right out.

I’d like to offer a  word of advice to all you new knitters: When choosing yarn for a project, choose a yarn that will WORK with said project.

You don’t want to make a sock, for example, in a yarn that doesn’t stretch.

For some reason I thought it would be a good idea to make my sock in …

MERCERIZED COTTON.

!!!!!

This is probably the WORST yarn to use on a sock. It has absolutely no stretch. I practically broke my arm trying to get the thing on and off of my foot.

I’m now attempting the socks again with proper sock yarn. They look fantastic, if I do say so myself. I’ll post pics as soon as I can get hold of a camera.
