A Dismal Failure

Well, the sock has been unravelled. I opted for a rather simple stitch pattern which I was sure would translate well for use on a sock but unfortunately the wool that I was using for the sock had too dark a base colour so the pattern did not show up particularly well. My only course of action was to take it off the needles and start again.

Fortunately I have a reasonable range of sock yarn in my stash so I am going to start my exercise in design again, but this time with a yarn that is much lighter in colour and which, because of this, will allow me to choose a more exciting stitch pattern to incorporate into the sock. So, armed with my book, my knitting needles and my new choice of yarn, I will be setting off for the knitting group and some serious knitting and knitters' chat.

I'll let you know how I get on later.
