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.
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!
