How to Turn a “Quick and Easy” Sock Into a 3 Week Endeavor in 7 Easy Steps:
Step 1: Cast on the wrong number of stitches for both socks at once. Don’t discover this problem until you’re ready to knit the heel.
Step 2: Work almost the entire heel. Decide that a short row heel would really be much better and “faster.”
Step 3: Choose an easy stitch pattern to hold your interest. Repeatedly make the same mistake and have to tink back multiple times. Remember to do this on each pattern row.
Step 4: When dividing for a separate big toe, make sure to set aside the wrong stitches on the second sock to end up with two left socks.
Step 5: Don’t plan out the decreases for the toe sections. Whatever you do, be certain not to write down how you decreased the first sock.
Step 6: Graft toes closed with Kitchener stitch. Don’t forget to double up on a step and end up with an uneven number of stitches.
Step 7: Weave in ends and steam block lightly.
