April - Nutkins

I started my April sock on March 30th, which I know was a bit of a cheat, but really who is going to punish me? The knitting nazis might get me!! Anyway, I started knitting the first sock on size one needles. I don't know what made me think that I would get gauge with needles that small. I am a loose knitter but I don't care how loose I knit, I got the first repeat done and tried them on.. good to go :) and then.. I got five repeats done and I was ready to start the heel. I tried them on again, just because the progress is so fun to see on an actual foot...Yea so I pretty much wanted to rip my hair out but ended up having to frog everything but the ribbing. I decided on going to my trusty size 2 harmonys and was able to fly thru 4 repeats and now I have an entire sock done. I may have set a world record, or not.... I did this entire sock in four days including the almost losing my hair frogging incident.

Pattern: Nutkin
Yarn: Koigu KPPPM
