I was going to have a fantastic post for you today....all about my most recently completed socks, which just so happen to be a rare case of Fancy in this household.
However, when I put them on yesterday I realized that I was going to have to completely rip out and redo the toe.
Because I didn't listen to the pattern, and put the toe decreases where I thought they should go. The pattern has clear instructions on how to center them, instructions which I felt were silly.
So when I put them on I discovered that the toe was skewed to the side, and really wasn't comfortable.
I also discovered that it was just a tad too short...despite my best measurements and several fittings.
SO, no Fancy Sock Post today.....
And by the way, to add insult to injury I actually wove in the ends as soon as I finished the socks....rather than waiting until their first official foray into the world. I did a really good job, and so it's going to be a trick to find them. Not to mention that I need a couple of extra rows worth of yarn now anyway.
