Oh, NO!

I decided to take some progress pix of my current projects, and it is a good thing I did, as otherwise I would not have noticed this:

In case you can't see it, there is a big boo-boo in the moss stitch. At least the cabling looks okay.

And this old dog did learn a new trick, cabling without a cable needle, but I think the instructions in the issue of Interweave Knits I am using are backwards.

Having given up on the two-socks-on-two-circs for a while, I went ahead and started a pair on DPNs. I am using a 2x2 waffle ribbing stitch (from Sensational Knitted Socks), which is such a simple thing but I really like the result.

These were supposed to be xmas socks for my SO. I have a couple of long meetings next week, so he may get them by the end of the month.

Meanwhile, until I feel like repairing the Every Way Wrap, I think I will work on the Bog Jacket, which is what I should be doing anyway.

I hate mistakes in moss stitch. I find it very obvious, and then I have to decide whether to frog or not. In this case, since the cables look good, I'd skip the frogging. Unless of course it woke me up two nights in a row, then I'd frog. I had a mishap with my anniversary socks. Two DPNs got pulled out and it's taken forever to get things back up to speed. ARGGG!

I hate it when that happens! You wouldn't believe how many times I've put a picture up on my blog and not seen the mistakes until I hit "publish". Oops.

I love the colors in the sock yarn. What yarn are you using?
