That weird jog thing
I finished a Unicorn Vomit Sock and started another
I had a problem on the first sock that I haven’t encountered before, because I’ve never made socks on DPNs before:
This is a terrible picture, but you can just barely see it in the middle: there’s a weird line going up each “corner” of the sock (both sides, top, and bottom) where I switch from one needle to the next – a kind of wonky jog. You can sort of see it in the top picture, too. I haven’t figured out if this is caused by that stitch or two where the needles meet being too loose or too tight, since no tension-adjusting that I tried to get rid of it worked.
I fixed this problem on sock #2 by rotating the sock around the four needles. Each time I finish moving all the stitches from one needle to the next, I knit one stitch from the next-next needle, so the “corner” is never in the same place. This is working out rather well, since I can’t see any corners on sock #2. But it sure is fiddly and annoying.
Have y’all had this problem? How did you solve it? Can I just block it out?
I’m working the Nashville Comic Expo this weekend (I’M SO EXCITED), so I probably won’t have much knitting time. However, I am an aggressively unfailing optimist, so I’ll bring some knitting with me: the Unicorn Vomit Sock and this other half-finished pair that I found lying around.
