More socks? Maybe to go with my new shoes? I got some ultra comfy new soft walk shoes, humorously enough named, Lafon(Didn't notice that until I was throwing away the box at home several hours after I put them on my feet) that will show off my socks knit with an interesting zig zag pattern from my Bauerliches Stricken 3 book. Knit up in the Lisa Souza South Pacific sock yarn I picked up at Stitches. I knit away like a fiend and in a day had the whole sock done.

Like a hump though, I didn't really pay too much attention to the size of my foot asI was knitting this sock. So As I am completely done with it, at the point where I am debating what type of ribbing or non-ribbing to put at the top of the ankle, it occurs to me to put this thing on my foot. So I slip 1/2 the stitches onto a circular and cram the sucker on to my foot, only to find it is a bit, um, short. I blink in surprise " Like, duh, this is too short why didn't I make the toe section longer so that it would fit my foot???" It was the kind of tight, where I thought to myself, yeah, I can wear it like this... Yeah, I don't mind my toes pulling down just a little like that.

Then I frogged it. Pulled out all 18 inches worth of stitches back down to the toe where the pattern work began and added an inch of stockinette. Stupid. So now I have worked back up a whole 1". Wahoo, just 17" more to go...

I feel your pain. :-) You're better than me though. I just pull out the needles and throw the sock across the room. Only to frog it a week later.
