I turned the heel of my second sock last night. All was fine until about an hour ago, when i saw that I’d dropped a stitch … BEFORE THE HEEL.
I used a crochet hook to pick it up, but it created this ridge, which I didn’t like. So I ripped.
Everything would’ve been fine if I’d been able to pick the stitches back up cleanly. But it was not meant to be. The stitches were all tight, and I couldn’t get them to the other side of the needle. So I used my desk as leverage, and tried to un-tighten the stitches by pushing them down the needle. I figured, hey, y’know, gravity works.
THE NEEDLE SNAPPED. My nice wood sock needle SNAPPED. Thank goodness I’m not using the knitpicks set I thought about buying. Well, actually, no. BECAUSE THEN I’D HAVE AN EXTRA.
I can’t get to Knit Las Vegas to buy another set until Monday, because why waste gas when I’m going out there on Monday anyway?
Any suggestions for how I can salvage what I have left for about a week? HELP!
The first sock is done, though. Here’s a couple pictures:
