Early last week I lost my sock knitting mojo. Not great timing as it was just the second week of a year of projects; and all those projects, socks. But after a week where none of my "great ideas" amounted to much on the needles (or crochet hooks), getting back to a tried and tested sock pattern has been a relief.
Funny thing, though. It was when I started the second sock and reread the instructions that I realized I'd made an error in the first sock. DOH. The Latvian twist is meant to be constructed from one row light grey, two rows dark grey and one row red. I never switched to the dark grey on the first sock, so my Latvian twist is two colours instead of three. It's okay though, I like it just the way it is, so I duplicated my error for a matching second sock.
Tonight I'll work through the second chart to add the Maple Leaf motif, and then it's all grey all the way to the toe. Perfect transit and travel knitting to carry me into the work week!
