I finally got started on my February Socks that Rock socks and I'm loving this yarn. So soft and squishy and it knits up beautifully. It also handles frogging very well. This month's pattern is a series of firsts for me - provisional cast on, toe up, short row heel, cables. I'm really looking forward to learning all these new techniques. But, me being me, I've run into some problems. When it came time to unzip the provisional cast on, no such luck. Is this unzipping supposed to just come right apart? Becuase it really didn't. And I'm a dork and got the stitches all twisted when I got them on the needles. And somehow in this whole process I lost 3 stitches. I have no idea how. And then one of my needles snapped. Such lovely needles too - my Colonial Rosewood needles, so I'm very sad. Anyone know if they have a replacement policy? So I'll be starting over with different needles, hopefully with better luck this time.
