Virtually No Progress Has Been Made on This Sock

Yet, I worked on it yesterday afternoon.  Apparently, I can't keep a simple knit, purl pattern in my head long enough to get across the instep stitches.  It's not like I have to think for the sole stitches - they're just stockinette.  Of course I wouldn't discover my mistake until after I'd come around on the following round.  Then I was faced with the decision to tink back the round and reknit or switch every stitch as I come to it, and then work it.  I'm not really sure which one is faster, I just know that neither is fun in black yarn.

I also realized that I should at least get this first sock finished before Camp Loopy starts this Summer, but I'm not sure if that's going to happen or not.  Yes, it's that time of year - Camp Loopy time!  The first project was announced yesterday and I've already placed my order and have a plan.  If you've never done Camp Loopy, it's lots of fun, and I've found all the challenges do-able during the past two summers.  I'll post my project details once the yarn gets here (probably later this week), if you're curious.

Hi Melanie. I think you'll love Camp Loopy. I did it for the first time last year and it was a great way to try different techniques (like felting for me) and have a good incentive to finish a project! I'm selected my project for the first month: Belladonna Took! Your patterns are always well written and beautiful. I can't wait for June 1st to come so I can start working on it.
