1. I like the yarn I picked.
2. I like the length of the sole-I did the proper measuring and it came out just right.
3. The heel is good (but I must confess that my teacher helped me every step of the way).
Now, let me tell you what I don't like about this sock-
1. It is too big everywhere else-around the instep & around the leg.
2. I don't like the little turn-down cuff.
3. I don't like the length of the leg. It is too short to be a knee sock and too long to be an anklet sock.
4. Because it is too big and the length of the leg is awkward, of course, it sags.
Now I realize that this is my first sock. All you experienced knitters would have fixed the cuff into plain ribbing or just left it off. And made the length of the leg shorter. But, as a beginner, I tend to do what the pattern tells me. I don't try to rethink the writer of the pattern. And this was a knitting class that was specifically for this pattern of sock.
Now, the question is, do I want to spend my time making the matching sock? Even if I knit the second one to fit better, I probably won't want to wear the set because this one is just not comfortable.One more thing to throw in the mix-I am starting another knitting class on Saturday. It runs 3 weeks. So if I start the second sock it would probably be after that class is over. What would you do?
