So last night I had finished 4 pattern repeats of the toe-up socks, and I was ready to start increasing for the gusset.
I looked at the sock and thought, “But which side should I put the increases on?”
Then I thought something like, “FFFFFFFUUUUUUUU-”
Here’s one side:
And here’s the other:
The problem? PATTERN ON THE SOLE SIDE. Yep, somehow I missed this little fact, even as I was constantly comparing it to the finished sock (which has a correctly-unpatterned sole) to figure out when to start the gussets.
So I ripped it all back and flounced down on the couch and cast on for the toe again.
Happy New Year!
