Is It Ribbit or Rip It?

I haven't gotten to a place of peace about these socks.  With every round knit, there is a nagging at the back of my mind.  I was successful at stranding loosely across the back, but I just don't like the socks.  This is the first time that I've done any colorwork on socks.  I've never even changed colors for rounds and it has been a rude awakening for me. Can you see how the fabric is not smooth, but has puckers at the color change?  Sooooo, they will be ripped back to the beginning and become much more simple.

I do like the Knitpicks yarn, it is sturdy and believe me I know 'cause I've ripped back about 10 times.  What knitting project should cause such heart and headache?  Is this not a pleasurable hobby? Those dang frogs! Rippit, Rippit, Rippit...

  1. Good luck finding a better pattern. I know how frustrating that ripping can be.


I am always happy to hear from you.
