The sock that wouldn't end

I haven't posted for a few days, but I have been knitting and unknitting. Believe it or not this is not the same pic of my first sock. Nope, this pic is of the sock after ripping back a total of 5 times. I get to a certain part of the gusset (about the 6th round) and I start noticing that something doesn't look quite right :-(. This time I'm instead of stopping and redoing from here, I'm going to rip back to the end of the first round after the gusset stitches were picked up. I think part of the problem is that I forget to make sure that I'm holding the working yarn between both needles and not over the back needle. I've done that a few times so I know it creates a false stitch which I probably knit into the next round.
We'll see.

Good luck making it through the sock! The colorway is lovely, it'll look great when you're done.

Glad you liked my bag over at "Sew? I knit." The matching needles were a SP gift, they're from the $1 bin at target. They're too scratchy to actually knit with, but they do photograph well. :)

Thanks Katie. Yeah, your bag is really cute. Did you plan on matching it when you bought the needles or was that just pure luck?
