So I've decided to take the sock plunge and knit up some self patterning socks. The hubby didn't believe that it would work so I bought the yarn to prove him wrong and make him something.
Thus far...and I'm not far, he's right, I can't get it to pattern.
I'm using a simple sock pattern, because there wasn't one included with the yarn. I think my problem is with gauge. Do I need to be the gauge that the pattern says I should be or do I need to be the gauge that the yarn says to knit up in? I don't have the label with me right now, but it's something like needles: 2-3 (check, I'm using 2) and then like 30 stitches per 4 inch (but the pattern I'm using is 7 per inch or 28 per 4 in).
Ugh....maybe I should keep knitting and wait until I've done an inch or so...how anoying. I bought the pattern and sock yarn together at Knit Happens (their ad is usually here - and I live in DC) they were so friendly and knowledgable, I hope they didn't stear me wrong.
