Reckless

It may seem reckless to some, but it had to be done. I'm in the middle of my six sock pairs crazy frenzy knitting challenge thing-a-ma-bob and I frogged a partial sock. The Peak Experience Lorna's Laces Bittersweet sock just was not doing it for me. So, after knitting about 4 inches I frogged it and I then turned to my handy dandy Sensational Knitted Socks book. I picked out the Openwork Rib pattern and here's what I've got so far.

I'm way happier with how this is looking. I'm not quite sure what I didn't like about the Peak Experience pattern. Perhaps it was that the yarn was just not being shown off and the pattern itself was just so similar to Broadripple which I found to be a little tedious. Oh well, knit and learn:)

Alyssa, I feel your pain, all I do these days is knit and frog and reknit ad infinitum. You know those socks I was working on, midway into the foot, I realized I was knitting them inside out, and frogged the whole thing! At least now I know what I did wrong; the next socks I knit will be for my 6 year old, so if I make a mistake, it won't take so long to redo.
