Well, I'm not feeling as optimistic now. I got all the way to picking up stitches for the gusset, and now I'm lost. My stitches aren't in the same place as the pictures in the book, and I've followed the directions word-for-word.
It must be the book, it couldn't possibly be me, right? Ha! I've made socks on dpns with no problem, so I understand the anatomy of a sock, but this is not making sense to me.
I think the problem is having two socks going on at the same time and always having to move the stitches around to work on one and then the other. You really have to concentrate or you can easily get lost.
ML really isn't that hard, when working on one item. I'm tempted to unravel and knit one sock at a time using ML -- but I want to knit TWO AT A TIME!
