New Sock Project

Well, I opted to start a pair of socks with a color work pattern. I knit almost all day yesterday and it was slow moving! I was second guessing if this is really what I wanted to do. 

I have knit colorwork with worsted weight yarn and it is easy, but it is not so easy with this fine fingerweight yarn. I am having a hard time holding my tension. It is either too tight or too loose. It is just plain harder to work 2 colors with this fine yarn. I am also knitting very tight. Not relaxed at all. I am wondering if it will be too tight for my leg. I checked the gauge again and it is still good, but doesn’t have a lot of give. Oh well we shall see. I will add a picture at the end of the day so you can see how it is coming along.

I am not too worried that it may take a while to knit. I don’t care about that, I just want it to be usable. I guess this is part of the process.
