I’ve given up already. I do not like toe up patterns. I do not like this yarn. I’ve already made one pair of socks using it and I thought bad words while making it but I used size 1 needles. They don’t feel as scratchy on my feet as they do to my hands when I’m knitting. The yarn is 75% wool/25% nylon but I think it’s the same wool they use for Brillo pads! I know . . Brillo pads are not made of real wool . . are they?
I’ve switched back to my plain jane Classic Socks for the Family pattern that I love. I’m using size 3 needles. If I think bad words, I will not say them and I will hurry up and finish and be done with these. And then . . I’ll just have one more skein of this yarn to use and if I’m lucky, it’s lost!
