Oh, oh, Kermit’s back

The Skew sock was completed last night and I tried it on. This thing is just not going to work, so it is off to the frog pond for it.

A strange looking thing... all Skew Whiff

I had a lot of fun, the whole knitting thing was a real magical mystery tour. I’m glad I made it, but I am never going to wear it, so there is no point in making the second sock.

Left Skew Completed

What’s the problem? Well, there’s the usual toe-up problem that I have – the sock doesn’t offer sufficient depth around my instep/heel. This pattern actually makes it on to my foot (hurrah!) but doesn’t offer any comfort. The toe is all wrong for my foot, too. Additionally, I do not like the feel of the skewed fabric against my skin – at least not in this horrible scratchy yarn.


The Origami Moment was fun, and I was extremely pleased with my grafting.


Overall, a fun project. I might tackle it again in the future after I’ve done the maths to improve roominess about my ankle but I’ll certainly use a far nicer yarn. Knitting this Regia reminded me why I love Toddy so very much!

    Sorry it didn’t work out for you. If you ever decide to try it again, there are high-instep mods on my blog.

      Thank you, that is brilliant news. I shall investigate – then find a nicer striping yarn to play with – and have another go.
