I Love My Socks, I Hate My Socks

These are my new favorite socks. I love the pattern (Stansfield 196 from More Sensational Knitted Socks).

The Yarn is BMFA Socks that Rock Mediumweight, in Ms Larock.

And here we have the latest sock disaster:

This is the Nutkin pattern, knit in Wollmeise 100% superwash in colorway Velichen. It's a stunning sock, but it DOESN'T FIT! WAH! I even added 8 stitches to the original pattern because I knew it would be on the small size, but nuts to Nutkin. It just didn't work.

I'm going to take a break from socks for a bit. I joined the Dream In Color Classy KAL over at the Loopy Ewe. I had the yarn already, and I'll be making a simple top-down tunic. It doesn't look like much right now, so I'll save photos for the next post.

And I have a baby gift to make by the end of March. I have the books and yarn on order, and I'll have to start those items as soon as the yarn gets here, which hopefully will be next week.

I love your Wollmeise socks. It's a shame they don't fit. I hate when that happens, especially once you get as far as you did!
