Pride comes before a silly mistake, usually.

I admit it, I got cocky. ‘I wonder how fast I could make a whole sock now’ I thought. For I, as you may know, am now a sock knitting wizard.

But then I went to knit the next needle and found this:

A big, long, accidental float on the outside. On the previous round I must not have noticed that the yarn was wrapped round the side (a frequent occurrence), so I missed a whole needle and carried on knitting the next one.

I’m a dingbat.

But now I’m a dingbat who will always double and triple check that the yarn is not wrapped round anywhere in any way before I start knitting.

Plus this is the first time I’ve had to undo anything on the second sock, so on balance I’m doing pretty well.

But let’s not get cocky…
