Hello Fellow Sock Knitters,
I'm a long-time sock knitter, and I thought I was dedicated to knitting socks with double points. I've never had a problem with ladders (the irregularity in the fabric between the stitches) before, but I'm knitting my first sock on 2 circular needles and see ladders forming where I switch from one end of the circular to the other.
This is infuriating, and I'm considering giving up altogether on circulars. I know that many knitters are devotees of knitting socks on two circulars, and I want it to be an option for me too, but I refuse to see the quality slip. I tried knitting the stitches tighter before and after the needle change, but it seemed to make the problem worse. I tried to concentrate on a even tension throughout, but that didn't seem to help either.
Please tell me what works for you! HELP!
