I have been away from my 2-socks-on-2-circs knitting project for about 6 wks, and when I went to pick it up something really strange is going on. When I go to knit as usual, starting from the edge with the yarn strand coming off of it, it comes out not in stockinette but in garter. If I purl it, it looks fine. But unless I am losing my mind, I did not knit these things so far (~ 5") in purl, I knit them in garter that automatically became stockinette since it is on circs.
All I can think of is I had a few mess-ups where I got tangled in my needles and had to do a lot of weird stuff to get them right again. Maybe I stopped there and did not try to knit anymore - and did something that got it all backwards.
Does this make since? I can't remember back 6 weeks!
