My Sidewinder is really starting to look like a sock! I am about a third of the way through grafting the sock into a tube. It was hard to stop working on them when I’m so close to being finished, but duty calls and I have things I need to get done today.
The most difficult part of this pattern has been executing the ‘make ones’ correctly. I really messed them up on the toe increases, but decided not to rip back. Then despite being extra careful and revisiting the instructions I still messed up a few of the heel increases. The color changes in the yarn helped me figure out which yarn I should pick up, but then I kept trying to knit or purl into the easy part of that new loop when I needed to knit or purl into the difficult part! Maybe that’s the best way for me to remember how to do it correctly – if it’s easy then something must be wrong. 🙂
