The first time I tried this stitch, trying to read the directions from a website as I was stitching, it ended up a mess. I was frustrated! I understood the progression from stitch to stitch. I got it! But my first attempt was a disaster.Not one to easily give up, I undid what I’d done on my practice piece (you don’t think I would have tried this on my real sock, did you? No way!)
