Pooling defined...

I've seen many knitters - especially sock knitters, who complain and bemoan all the pooling they see. Well honey, you ain't seen nothing yet. This is pooling!



I'm working on the gusset increases and they still feel a smidge loose. But the 76 stitch version was too tight. So there you go. I could have tried for size 0 addis, but I don't have any of those yet.

Also for your viewing pleasure the half hooded rogue...



Yep, that's all I got done in my marathon knitting session. But Beth sweetly offered me her "Pokey Purler" button for my sidebar. And yes, I put that baby right on my server. Cause Pokey is me. And isn't the turtle cute?

Well my sidebar is updated, and my house is a wreck per usual. So I need to shower, feed the boys (doot doot is home sick again) and then clean like a maniac so I can justify my knitting time.

No worries, your sock looks great!

Allow me to share some of my past pooling with you:

Those are my Making Waves socks knit from LLSSport in Watercolor. There's an equally large blotch of the raspberry color on the bottom of the foot. I guess my gauge changed from one sock to the other. Who knew?

That is a lot of pooling, but you know... I kinda like it!
