I will never "not" wear my socks.
Learning to make socks is an interesting learning process. First, you have to get comfortable using DPNs (or whatever needles you use). Then it takes a while to understand the actual construction of the socks. Then you start figuring out ways to customize (other than regular mistakes
) your socks.
I think it will be interesting to see the difference between a sock knitted on size 1 versus size 3 needles.
I have figured out that if I'm going to knit a 12-stitch pattern, the number of CO is going to be higher, hence I need a smaller needle to accommodate the number of stitches. I'm usually a tight knitter, which is why I go up in size. But I also think that my tension is starting to loosen up a bit.
Anyhow, I'll go ahead and change needle size and see what happens. Guess my kids are not going to get their bathroom rug (my next project) just yet.
Thanks for the advice. As always, y'all are the best!
