Knitting: Socks - The Body

I mentioned this on my facebook page, but I'll put it here too. I casted on 44 stitches on these needles, and now I have 50. Grrrr!!!!
I have no clue how that happened. Maybe for the second sock, I will knit on circular needles. I have seen it done before, so I know it's possible. I didn't really get it when I saw it, but maybe because maybe in my desperation to finish these socks, I will pay attention better.

Mmmmm! I've made endless mistakes when I have knit socks, but I don't remember having that problem. I'll bet you picked them up as you changed from needle to needle. They look pretty, but I'm sure that's discouraging:( Don't give up!

Yeah, that's probably what I did. Picked up extra stitches as I move from one needle to the other one.

I'm not discouraged. I will keep chugging along. My thing is, these are my first pair of socks, so I'm not going to try and do this perfectly. Not for this pair. Maybe after I have made some for a few times, then I can try and do it perfectly. But with these one, I am in relaxation mode...so to speak.
