Tread Lightly



I finished some socks this Monday while the Yarn Harlot was reading at Third Place Books. The funny part was when the knitter seated next to me said, "Are those Clementine's Baltic Socks?" And then she so kindly lent me a darning needle and fancy shears! I did in fact frog back four repeats and fix an error, and then later I frogged back 2 repeats to fix another error. There is a part of the pattern where you repeat the same row three times, and I seem to have a mental block in which I want to repeat the row four times. I did not make these the full eleven repeat height before the heel, because frankly, I got a little bored with the pattern. I am glad I stuck with it because I do think they came out pretty.
