I am going to make some socks for my dad. I started with my figuring out my gauge. This will be my first pair of socks to knit. I’m using Purl Soho’s pattern. I’m not doing the stripes because I’m using a variegated yarn. I had four or five rounds knit on my needles, but I went upstairs to do something and when I came back downstairs, the needles were not where they were supposed to be. Very sad.
