Change of Plans

The Chocolate Chicken is no longer talking to a fish. The farther I got on that sock, the more the little voice in my head (no, not that voice, the knitting one) was telling me that this sock wasn't going to fit my foot. I'm not saying it wouldn't fit any foot, I just didn't feel like it was going to fit my particular foot shape. I've learned in the past not to ignore the voice in my head (the knitting one again, the rest of them are just crazy) because I'll just end up frogging the project later, so I unraveled what I had of the sock and started over with a different pattern.*

I'm now making a pair of Waving Lace Socks (this pattern was in IK Spring 2004 and it's in the Favorite Socks: 25 Timeless Designs from Interweave book). I've knit this pattern twice before and I really like it, but the other two times I've done it I've used handdyed solids instead of multicolored yarns. It does look different in a multicolored yarn, but I still like it. I've just started the heel flap on the first sock at this point, so I'm making up for lost time on these pretty quickly. I don't think I'll have trouble getting the pair done by the end of the month.

*I don't know if this is against the rules of my Knit Something of the Month Club, but since it's my club and I make the rules, I think it's allowed to change patterns mid-stream when the first pattern just isn't working out.

After more "falling flat on my face" incident than I care to remember, I, too, have learned to listen to The Voice.

It's not against the rules. It's pulling victory out of defeat.

I have frogged more than I care to admit. In fact, I'm better at frogging than knitting .... I agree ... it's a good thing to stop when you are ahead and start over! Love the colors.
