with socks, i have been knitting my sock since last night. after flickering flames’ 640 sts in the last 48 rounds, just 48 sts in a round is like a heavenly speed demon. the sock is probably 2 1/2 inches long allready. I ended up just swinging the pattern ’cause i couldn’t manage gauge and It was going to be huge. the wonderful ladies at knitty coffeshop helped me with some stuff and i think i need to ask them a few more questions.
