Sport Weight Socks
Ok, I know I haven't been feeling well since yesterday and all that, but it seems to me that sport weight is much harder to knit than worsted.

I started another sock. This one in a blue sport weight cotton yarn on size 4 needles (Options, ML). The stuff is so friggin small that I am having a hard time separating the stitches while trying to knit them. Being a solid color doesn't help much.

I'm trying to spread the stitches on the needle as I am going, and that does help some, but I've already discovered that this cotton yarn likes to split if you even look at it hard.

Is there some trick to knitting with this stuff or do I just grin and bear it?

I can already tell it's going to take a lot longer to knit a sock in sport weight than it did in worsted.

What do you mean guys don't knit?

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.
