After an inordinate amount of wrangling (and an excess amount of hair pulling) I finished my first toe! I'm using Lorna's Sheperd Sock yarn for the first time. The colorway is Gold Hill. I'm in love with it. Whad'ya think?
Long story short, I was so frustrated by the pattern I wound up emailing Marjan in the wee hours of the morning yesterday with some concerns I had with the pattern directions. Later on when I was more fully in control of myself I regretted my impetuosity but I get so wound up reading patterns. Hopefully you guys wont give me the pain in the butt award and kick me to the curb. :-P. Oh, and if anyone needs any help getting over the toe, I'd be glad to help.
Now that I've begun the foot and given up trying to use my new Lantern Moon Sox Stix I'm having no problems. Thanks Peaknit for letting me join. And kudos to all the posters so far. Great yarn choices!
