Unfortunate downside to the amazing knitting thimble: it completely changed my tension. These socks went from very tight over the calf to potentially unwearably tight.
I opened up the heel to see if I could even get the sock over my foot, and no luck. I was determined to make something nice for myself this time, so I shall rip it up and start again, a size up in both pattern and needles.
The pattern is so gorgeous and the colours are turning out just perfect, so while I’m a bit annoyed, I’m more impatient as I just really want to wear the socks as soon as possible!
