Need help with Silvers sock tutorial or just plain HELP!
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.
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?
OTN: Not a thing. I'm supposed to be studying.....

future plans: Afghan, baby blanket and a cabled...something ;hats and mittens to follow for kids.
