I have decided so far on the Pomatomas sock - I will however for the sake of my sanity have to come up with a nickname I can actually spell in referring to this sock on the blog. Tomas? Poma? Either of those names and I might as well learn to spell it all, PS sock? I'll have to see if anything sticks. Last night I cast on and finished the ribbing and barely started the pattern.
I disregarded Jenni's advice as I don't have the yarn or pattern for her write in. I may make it in the future. Would the fall be okay to put that on the list?
It took me a little longer to get to PS then I thought it would, mainly since I lied (I didn't mean to lie, when I stated the comment I thought it was the truth) about being done on the heel in the mistake rib sock. See I thought my third attempt at this heel looked good and I started the heel flap. Then I started looking at the gusset and the heel.
Picked up the first sock - the second one is shorter. I had forgotten/skipped 8 gusset rows, so my gusset was going to be short 4 sts on each side and sock was going to be short, back I ripped added the extra rows. The end of this story is I didn't finish the heel until Friday night, so now just the cuff left. I was hoping to have this pair done this weekend, and well that is not going to happen.
I am going work on the cuff of the poma, to make sure I like how it is going to go and then I'll finish Ali's socks.
