So, when did I stop knowing how to read a basic instruction? I'm knitting Elm, a Cookie A sock, and it's got a 12 stitch repeat. I happily knit the leg, which came out a good width. I couldn't work out why so many people on Ravelry say its a very skinny sock. ... Until I got to the heel and realised I was knitting over 72 stitches, rather than the 60 called for in the pattern. It's fine, and will still fit Leon perfectly, but that's the third project in a very short length of time where I've managed to not follow the pattern, completely accidentally.
At least the yarn is perfect, a Blue Faced Leicester / Nylon sock blend, dyed by the talented Ursula.
