Remember how much complaining I did that the Frankensocks were more difficult to knit than they should have been? I'm having the same kind of trouble with this pair and I'm starting to wonder if I've figured out the problem.
Maybe it's the needles. This is the same pair I used for the Frankensocks and the tips aren't sliding into each stitch as easily as they should. I'm starting to wonder if they've just started to wear out. Or if I've done something to damage them.
