P socks started........


Blah, what is it with dpn's and pearl stitches? I get big holes.
The start of the repeat in the middle of the needle looks fine, but the one where I go from one needle to the other is crap. I just don't seem to be able to keep the tension even going between needles.

Perhaps I'll try this on a circular and just hope that going down from 2.75mm to 2.25 mm doesn't make the sock too small.

I really like the look of all those gorgeous P socks I have seen on other blogs and really want a pair for myself. So I will just have to mess about with needles and yarn for a bit.







Something that did work was adding candles and crystals to the shells we collected when we saw Great Grandma last month.



And the shells I brought back over the New Year.

I remember having the same issues with P socks but it kind of works out ok after a while, as it is moving around the bigger holes aren't always in the same spot. I also found that by pulling the yarn tight when working that stitch and the next couple after helped.

They are a gorgeous sock and I have one still waiting for his mate. It's not that I have second sock syndrome it is the cold weather has hit Tassie and we all need jumpers, so my P sock is on hold :(
