I'm just finishing up my second pair of LTK soakers in as many days, and am feeling a little frustrated. The first pair was a trial run and I used old scrap yarn that I needed to get rid of anyway, so it didn't matter if I made mistakes.

Well, on the second pair I'm still having some problems, and I'm realizing that it's not me - there are several errors in the pattern. (Like how do you go from 46 stitches to 24 stitches if you're decreasing four stitches per row?) Anyone else have this experience? Or am I just an imbecile? : (I'm an experienced knitter, too! I've made sweaters, baby blankets, etc etc....)

Both pairs look just fine, and I'm sure they'll be perfectly functional, but there are little things "wrong" with them that I know about, and it just grates on my perfectionist side.

OK back to alphabetizing my CDs and re-organizing my kitchen cupboards for the 10th time today.... heh heh just kidding.

I haven't used the LTK pattern yet, but I know there are forums on the LTK site where you can get "technical support". Might want to check there and see if they've issued any corrections to the pattern?

I had the same math problem you did. I think I just decreased 2 stitches on the last one since decreasing 4 would have been too many. Mine came out just fine.
