After finally working through the vertical cast on, I was glad to get into the actual knitting part of the stockings. It took all day Saturday to figure out how to even start the toe. Sunday was going to be for knitting.
Toe the first on #2 needles: (my colorwork tends to be tight, and I like CTH on #1's usually, so I figured #2's should be right for tension)
Tension is good, but the sock is way too big. Like too big for my husband too big.
Toe the second on #0 needles: (I thought jumping down two needle sizes would work)
No such luck. It fit my husband comfortably. Unfortunately, my sister has a lot smaller feet than he does.
This was getting really frustrating! Was I too confident? Jumping into something I shouldn't be doing? Resting on the laurels of my only other colorwork sock? So, I got out said sock and before I ripped, I compared.
So, after 2 complete days of knitting on the Turkish Stockings. This is my progress.
We'll just leave it at that.
