I think this shoulder decrease will stick. I have done the double decrease in the Jaywalker socks and had no trouble, but I could not get it to work right in the shoulders. This is my third go at it, but this time I kept it simple by doing a K2tog on one side and SSK on the other to form the double decrease.
I noticed the first few SSK's were wavy next to the K2tog, so I started using a modified SSK and it seems to lay next to the K2tog better. The modified SSK I am using is slip the first stitch knit-wise, slip the next stitch purl-wise, and then knit through the back loop.
I ordered yarn for a sock sample for my sock knitting class. I needed a different color for each part of the sock construction. I chose KnitPicks Telemark because I think it will have good stitch definition and the price was great. I snuck a needle for my lace knitting in the order too. I look forward to starting my first lace shawl.
