After doing a gauge swatch and changing needle size, I did the math and figured it would be the size I wanted if I knit a size smaller. Well, that was a real MBF! (Math Brain Fart)! After completing the first 35 rows, I realized that with more stitches per cm than the pattern called for I needed to go UP a size, not DOWN. Frogged! I’m getting good at frogging — Jerry could hear the “rippits” from his outdoor studio!

The Ugly —

Looked good — until I was 3/4 of the way across and realized my stitch count was WAY off and no way to correct it except to — you guessed it — FROG IT!

I think I’ll cast on the second sock and call it a good knitting day…..

  2. Gretchen, in the beginning of space girl, it really doesn’t matter if you started smaller, you can change sizes easily because the first part just goes over your head. I hope you didn’t already rip it out.
