i’ve been working on these socks for quite a while. they were started on a weekend that we visited a friend’s chalet on her property in southern ohio. i was really creative with the name…are you ready for this?….
cryptic note? measure twice, knit once. had i been a good blogger i would have chronicled my follies. long story short, i knit the foot too long. it was *a pain* picking up stitches and snipping off the toe…i tried to save the yarn at first, but gave up shortly thereafter since it didn’t frog smoothly (think of the agony of pulling the length of theyarn through each loop rather than easy peasy frogging).
lesson? pay attention!! and measure twice before you move on to the next part of the sock, else you create more work for yourself. by the way…the picture? courtesy of my phone camera. amazing what good light will do for a photo!
