The new "Percentage bar" was obviously a mistake. Jaywalkers are now frogged in their entirety. They were a disaster. Strange long feet! - I was very sure to follow the toe-up pattern to the letter on the second sock as the first had been a little big (more of a slipper than a sock), but the second one was even worse. As soon as I turned the heel I realised there was about 2 more inches than there should have been! I've put it down to not completely understanding which bit is which in the toe-up variety (thanks Badger - I should've listened!) But not one to give up, I have now bought Sensational Knitted Socks (as frequently recommended on the Angel Yarns Forum) so will have another go at toe-up but from another pattern!
I am also to be a grandmother!! - No, the dog's not preggers, But my Aloe Vera plant is! - YAY! I have three little baby ones appearing out the side, it's so exciting! - Will post a photo when they are big enough to take the pressure of public life!!
