Always Write Down Pattern Adaptions As You Do Them

So sock one looks beautiful-see picture in previous post. Sock two-not so much. My daughter compared it to a sock for a goat. So one might wonder how I could get such a nice looking baby sock while free styling adaptions to an adult patter the first time and then go so wrong on the second sock..well my dear chickadees it is because I did not write my changes down!! I then had to remember what I did the first time. Apparently my memory failed. I now will rip out (in knitters language this is, I hear called frogging?? Does anyone know why?)...I will knit another sock and keep track of the numbers this time. Wish me luck!

  1. Oh No.. I try to keep notes when I 'improvise' but I have been known to lose them. Not good. I have no idea why it's called frogging and would love to know if you find out.
    Good luck with the next sock.
