I am sure of it. I have cast on two pair of socks in the past month or so and both of them have had issues of sorts. First it was the Baudelaires knit in a poor choice of yarn. I realized I did not like the yarn/pattern combo about 4" into the pattern, and I should have frogged them at that point, but I think I was in denial. Into the frog pond they went. The yarn is off to a hilarious new home and something different is coming my way in return. (Go read her blog, you can thank me later for brightening your day.)
Then, bored with all my current projects, I decided to cast on for the Entrelac Socks. These I loved! I realized while knitting them that if I ever finished them I would be the proud owner of $60 socks (three skeins of Colinette Jitterbug). While this sounds posh, I also realized that there would not be too many places that I could/ would wear them. While they were very interesting to knit, they were a bit funky for my tastes. Did that stop me? Of course not! I knit them all the way to the heel, they looked great until I realized that the heel was actually going to be on the side of my sock instead of the bottom. I have no idea what I did to make that happen. So before I could even take a picture I frogged it too. Good news is the Jitterbug is a very hardy yarn and stood up well to both the knitting and frogging. This is another pattern that I would like to try again, just in a less expensive yarn.
Good thing it is barefoot weather and I won't be needing socks until September!
