For some reason the Anastasia Socks did not come together for me. Having about a dozen handmade socks under my belt you would think that whenever I picked up my DPNs magic would happen. That was not the case in this scenario. These socks did not knit up the way I planned.
Here is my finished pair:
- I didn’t take the chance on the short row toes. As a result, the toes ended up being a little pointy. You can’t really tell when the socks are on, but in hindsight I should have gone with the pattern.
- I mis-read the pattern at several points. Due to this, I had to remake the first 2 times before getting one complete sock. One of the biggest errors I made was not reading the chart properly. I overlooked that the chart was numbered by even rows and I was suppose to knit on every odd row. The knitted row between the eyelet rows really made a difference.
- I ran out of yarn. At first I just couldn’t believe it. How did that happen??? Well because I used a smaller knitting needle that the pattern called for. I thought it said US Size 1. Whoops.
Overall, I am not happy with these socks. To be honest I finished them just to finish them. They are still wearable, but not my finest knitting accomplishment. I hate it when you make something and it doesn’t work out.😒
