I am knitting Op Art Socks with a group, and the April/May sock is Albers. Albers is knit in a very unique way- you start by knitting squares, then join them together with stair step modules. At some point my sock looked like this:
...and to be honest I could not imagine how on earth this was a sock!
Then I sewed up the leg seam and knit the heel and sole, and it did turn into a sock, but one that was already longer than my foot before I even knit the toes!
To fix this issue, I sewed a double row of stitching on my sewing machine around the sock where you see the orange marker on my foot. I cut the end off the sock (eek!), and then picked up stitches on the edge and knit the toes. This gave me a wearable sock. Now I just need to finish the other one!
Linking up with Patchwork Times, on the needles!
