I thought I was home-free. Ordered some beautiful yarn on etsy from SeeJayneKnitYarns. It's beautiful, I love the feel of it, but now I'm worried that my sockpal won't like it. And then there's the matter of a pattern. I've looked through books, put half a forest of sticky posts on innumerable pages, and found what I thought was the perfect lacey pattern...but it's written for a child! Now, I'm a knitter from way back, but I've only made one pair of socks to date. What do *I* know about translating a child's sock pattern into an adult's??? I ask you!!! And then what about the guage?? Am I making too much out of this? Am I obsessing?? Can I even SPELL today?? What to do? What to do?
