I did not get the stripey socks finished this weekend. In fact I did not knit a single stitch all weekend. But last night I took my iPad and the socks to bed and finished them up while watching the most recent episodes of Granchester (which was very dark this week), and The Great British Baking Show.
I had the same toe issues with the second sock as the first. I had almost completed the toe when I remembered that I was suppose to change yarn for that bit, so I pulled back and began again. I was almost through the second knitting of the toe when I realized I was making a round toe instead of doing the decreases along the side of the foot as I had done for the first sock. Argh! So I pulled it out and began one more time.
In the end I am quite pleased. Fingers crossed this yarn wears well, if it does I will be ordering it again.
