I'm working on a sock with this yarn, Sereknity's Eye of Jupiter.
(Yes, I am having a Battlestar Galactica geekfest, with a side order of Firefly, what's it to ya?)
Anyway, I've got a problem. I'm making this sock with the Yarn Harlot's basic sock pattern from "Knitting Rules," across 64 stitches on size 2 needles, and the "leg" part is huge and baggy, but the heel fits perfectly and it looks like the foot will be okay, too (I've just gotten back to 64 stitches).
What have I done wrong? Maybe I've made too many socks using Monkey, a pattern with a charming lace pattern that makes the sock leg stretchy and clingy. I can't believe going down to size 1 needles is the answer, though I'm willing to consider the possibility. Or is it just that I'm not used to having a non-chunky ankle? (Because happily, I have a non-chunky ankle these days.)
Knitters, I seek your wisdom.
Is this a problem blocking can cure? Or must I frog this thing?
It bags in the back.
And I guess it bags in the front/on the side, too.
