Monday: WIP Day!

Another Monday, another go at the Boyfriend Socks otherwise known as the Blackrose socks in Knitty. I am working the decreases on the gusset now. I must admit that I was really confused by the instructions for the gusset decreases, but like many knitting instructions, if you just do what they say, it will all make sense. So in the case of these socks, the designer wants you to do a k2tog with one of the lace pattern stitches. I was horrified. Wasn't that going to move the whole pattern and make it look weird? Well, yes and no. Yes, the pattern does move down the side of the foot, but no the pattern doesn't really move. The whole thing was so clever. Now I understand why no one was posting on ravelry that the pattern needed errata.
