:wall: This is not the first pair of socks I have made either so I have no idea what in the heck is going on. I'm using Opal yarn and the needle size says to use 3 or 5's. I was taught on 5's so that is what I did and it's the only size sock dpn's I have except smaller for fingering.

I made the first sock and it turned out well. It fits my husbands foot perfectly. The second sock was my goof. I used the DK weight dimensions instead of worsted. I will frog that one at a later date or save it for a smaller foot.

Fastforward to sock 3 of this yarn (I'm really getting tired of working with it by now) I used the worsted dimensions on Silvers (the only sock pattern I use) and the 5dpn's and the blasted thing is too small!

I'm obviously going to have to frog this one too.:frog:

What am I doing wrong? Any insight? It's not like I'm switching needles size or patterns.

What should I do to get this second sock to fit? I can't believe I'm having this much difficulty!

What would happen if I used the fingering stitch number? Would that work? :shrug:
