Revenge of the SockNess Monster

Add Image

Things were going swimmingly with the sock-ness monster all the way though the first three repeats. People admired the color, the pattern, my cleverness at doing such a marvelous pattern, etc. Did the heel flap, turned the hell, gussets, then started the second chart on the foot. Ack. You knew things were going to good to be true! Just having lots of trouble getting things right on foot for some reason. Things not matching up. So My thought is to rip it back and give it one more time or to make some sort of twisted rib pattern down the foot. Would match the ribbing on the top of the sock. Sigh.

I actually had to revise the foot and ended up ripping the toe out twice. Her allowance for toe decreases and shaping is much longer than the pattern suggests - so I ended up decreasing more sharply (8 every 2 rounds, 4 every round) and starting closer to 2 1/2 inches from my toes.

Good luck with the foot pattern. You will get it - it's just about remembering where on the chart you are. You're basically keeping one end just in a rib, and adding the yarnovers on the other. You'll be fine. And think how impressive it will be.

I vote for an easier foot. It's in a shoe most of the time afterall.
