It's a good thing it's only a practice sock

I have started my practice sock for the second time. I was going to use the Cable Twist socks with a few modifications for a sock weight yarn as Grumperina did, but I was having issues since this is only the second adult size sock I have made and a different type of heel and toe than I did on my first sock. Luckily I ordered Favorite Socks and it arrived yesterday. As I was looking through I noticed a pattern by Ann Budd called Diagonal Cross-Rib Socks.

Diagonal Cross-Rib Socks

They have the same stitch pattern as the Cable Twist socks but the pattern is written for fingering weight yarn! Now I don't have to think so hard. I only had the leg done on the Cable Twist socks; there were a couple of minor mistakes and it was a little tight, so it wasn't overly painful to frog it all. I knitted most of it while I was on the plane to and from Atlanta. At least I got better at the left twist stitch so this new sock should go a lot faster.

Before frogging.

I joined my LYS's sock of the month club and I am really excited. Sock yarns and sock knitters!!!!
