hi! i'm excited to join this fun knitalong. thanks to susan for recommending it to me!
right now i'm working on a sock from yankee knitter - their basic sock pattern. i'm using some trekking xxl and am doing the 3X1 rib pattern, women's size. i'm enjoying it, although i had a rough time picking up some gusset stitches on the one side (what can i say? the O.C. was on. i was distracted!) fortunately you only see a tiny gap when you stretch it, so i'll just try not to stretch it! i'm hoping the 2nd sock will be gap free :)
i really want to start the hugs and kisses socks but haven't done that type of colorwork yet. is this something i use bobbins for? do your toes get caught in the floats? i'd appreciate any tips!
