January sock is finished
There's a lesson here.
I love the pattern (KnitPicks pattern: Gansey Socks). I love the yarn (Trekking Pro Natura).
But the pattern calls for size 4 needles and a DK weight yarn! So I thought I'd just knit a little looser with my fine yarn, and use size 3 needles.
The yarn I used should be knit with size 1 needles. So my sock looks like a billion holes held together with some yarn.
Lesson learned. But I have to commit the same offense over again in order to have a matching pair. However, the next pair I make will be knit scrupulously to gauge, and if the yarn doesn't fit the pattern, then I will either get a different yarn or get another pattern.
