Moving right along...eh, maybe?

Last week I picked up this project again. I left my third-try toe on 2.25 mm dpns off to the side to try a new sock on size 2.75 mm dpns. The single stitch cables seemed especially difficult on this toe up pattern for me and I am not new to cable patterns at all. I was hoping it would be easier with a less tight knit.

I'm not sure if I answered that question because as soon as I had the toe done I switched to a 2 circular needle style by Cat Bordhi which I found on youtube. (She also has a great youtube tutorial on hiding wrap stitches which I may test out on my second sock. Anyone interested should look here.)

I got up to the beginning of the gusset last week and then put it down again.

Now I'm thinking the sock is too loose, but I'm gonna finish it before making that decision. It's not my best work but I'm committed to completing finishing this KAL with a decent pair of socks.

I think the sock looks fabulous - it looks like it fits good - in any case - nice colorway choice and nice knitting!
