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.
