Progress and a New Skill

I've turned the corner

I’ve turned the corner

Miss P’s socks are progressing slowly. This is very meditative knitting – I find myself focusing on each stitch.

I did discover while knitting these socks that I have been doing SSK wrong! I could never understand why SSK and K2tog tbl were different (mine certainly weren’t!). I didn’t realise you slip the two stitches knit wise! I had been doing it Purl wise!

I have also finally worked out which way the decreases will lean! SSK is left and K2Tog is right!
