who knew?

rick differences, originally uploaded by gradschoolknitter.

Who knew that one stitch (ssk vs k2tog) could make such a difference?! I started the 2nd rick sock Friday night, and they have mirrored patterns... and as you can see, the first sock is MUCH skinnier than the second. It's probably a good thing that you do the right sock first, because if I had started with the left sock I probably wouldn't have ripped it back and added the extra stitches. And then I would have had one perfectly fine sock and one that would be too skinny and too tight to ever fit an adult human.

As is, I'm still worried that the first sock is going to be too small for the BF. It does fit me though....
