Changing Plans

This weekend I was working on my Twisted sock and I made it past the heel flap and the heel turn.  I started picking up stitches around the gusset to continue on with the foot, and as I was doing this, and reading the directions, the directions just seemed more complex than I wanted to deal with.  I thought about it for about 30 seconds and decided to frog and start over with another sock pattern.

I like the Twisted pattern, and I think the finished socks are really pretty, but this week is going to be crazy and I’ll need a traveling knitting project.  Socks are a great traveling knitting project as I wait for appointments and things, but these socks didn’t feel very portable.  Maybe if I had already finished the first sock and was working on the second sock, I might feel differently, but for now, I needed something simple.
I’ve started a pair of Hermione’s Everyday Socks.  For the edging, I worked three rounds of stockinette (so it would roll) and then six rounds of K2, P2 rib before diving into the stitch pattern.  The stitch pattern is subtle enough to show off the delicate color variations in the yarn and easy enough that I have it memorized.  It will be perfect for knitting in public this week.  It felt good to change my plans and start a pair of simple socks!
