Well, I have perservered. These lace petticoat socks should just be called 'damn hard socks'. With Ingrid's help I got the pattern going.
Ingrid! (or anyone else who knows this stuff) it's weird, the sock pattern is looking pretty much like the picture but I'm finding my left twists and rights twists are not identical.... like the left twists are so much more pronounced and neater looking whereas the right twists are not. Maybe I'm not doing the right twists right.
I'm going to keep going though, even though there are a couple little mistakes (that's ok isn't it!!!!?)
The other thing, maybe this should be a seperate post but
you know when you do a yo? What about when you are PURLING. Does the yo go in the same direction? I've tried both and it's confusing. That's a tricky one it seems to me.
whew. think I'll go lay down now.
