Every pair of socks I knit sooner or later, usually sooner, develops a hole or bare patch.
This was expensive sock yarn, too.
Most of my socks turn out very loose (dunno why, I'm a tense knitter), so maybe this time it was the friction against the back of my shoes.
Usually the hole falls in the ball of the foot, or bottom of heel.
So frustrating. I love hand knit socks.
I did start the baby blanket I switched to, after realizing the dress wouldn't work with the yarn and pattern.
Leaf Lace Blanket from 60 Quick Baby Knits.
It's meant for Cascade yarn, but I'd already purchased Paton's Classic Wool DK Superwash. Color is Wisteria.
I will have to buy more, but I'll worry about that later. The baby (a co-worker's first) is not due till March, after all.
The pattern is so simple--odd rounds 1-7 and 9-15 are the same. So just two different lines to memorize. I hope this flies off the needles, but -- well, I know better. My knitting luck has been rotten lately.
In other news, the weather has improved. It was 27 this morning when I walked the dog, and it felt like Spring. We're expecting icy rain overnight. Booo.
Oh, were you trying to do something here? Am I in the way?
