"warning ! warning will robinson !"


okay, perhaps that quote predates space invaders, but i still think it's funny. i wanted to share my growing progress with my bmp socks. just as i finished knitting the repeating invaders chart i noticed that my critters didn't look quite like aija's critters.


ps. photo is upside down

long story short, if you've already printed the bmp pattern, note that there is a mistake in the chart. the critters of rounds 42-57 of the repeating invaders chart should be swapped, if you want your socks to look as pictured (below photo) on knitty. but, if you want yours to look like mine (as pictured first and last), ... no worries, just knit like a lemming.


in the meantime, i am plodding through my next challenge ... the heel. not only is it short rowed, it has yo's, and lots and lots of line by line instructions. you'd think with all that guidance it would be a breeze ... but alas, i have an uncanny knack for making the simple more difficult.


inspite of minor obstacles, i am still very much enjoying knitting these socks.

oh, and because i finished my mindless sock project yesterday, i had to cast on last night with something else that practically self-knits. i am taking another shot with the lollipop opal, without the help of a certain pixie!

Knit like a lemming, woo-hoo! (I'm still waiting for my bumper sticker ;) Just finished the demon suckotta socks where I changed Everything; back now to Pomatomus so I can get back to lemming-ing...

Wow - funny you're the first to notice that! I hope they fix it soon. Did you notify Amyknitty or Aija? They're looking great anyway!

oh yes, i emailed aija and got a prompt reply and sincere apology for the goof. she was going to notify knitty and send them the file to make the change.
they're still a very fun knit, and i love that the mate doesn't match! yeah! no SSS. (fingers crossed)

I LOVE how those BMPs are coming out. I never really thought about knitting them until I saw yours! Too cool! I may have to make a pair for my husband too!

Wow, those seem complicated, but you're moving along great!

I love your shoes in the last post, they look just awesome with those beautiful socks!
