So, I was supposed to be making these http://www.knitlist.com/97gift/oceansox.htm with this yarn http://www.flickr.com/photos/20782829@N08/2185439817
which I truly believed would be beautiful....but I got to the heel flap and oh my. I had really screwed up some of the pattern and decided to frog it all and start over. I almost cast on a new project, but didn't. I started the sock over and am so HAPPY I did! :) I went 3x as fast, was actually accurate in my knitting and I think now I can see the addictive-ness that is socks. Now I'm all excited to get these done. :happydance:

Just had to share with some of you who know I've been doing these forever and get that little boost that you guys all give....thank you! Have a great day!

I am so glad you stuck with it. I have done the same thing and it is so satisfying when you finish such a beautiful pair of socks. You get a great big "ATTA GIRL" for that.:woot:

Oh, way to go! Glad to hear you're sticking with it!

I frogged my first sock attempt, as well. Messed up the stitch pattern somehow, and it was a mess. Put it aside for a couple of weeks, and picked up again. It was quite a thrill to finally finish it! I'm now working on the second one (terrified of suffering Second Sock Syndrome!) I'm already looking forward to my second pair.

Be sure to post pictures!

Way to go! Sometimes it's determination alone that gets these projects finished. Keep up the good work and post a picture of those Ocean Sox when they are done!
