i'm being a good girl !
yeah! one of my orphans is now a complete pair! i knitted on these yesterday ... and worked one of the toes twice.
i think that's the bane of my sock knitting ... the toes .... you'd think after all the socks i've knitted, i would think after all the socks i've knitted, that i would know what i'm doing. but, when it comes to fit, if my sock is even a tad too short, i don't like how it feels on my little flintstone toes.
that's what happened with these. i finished the first sock, and tried it on, and determined that i needed 3 more rounds of stockinette before the toe shaping. whaaa !
and i don't want to do toe up, because then that would be even more ripping to do to take out that heel because of how the sock is pulling on my toes.
see the red sticking out the top? sock blockers. sock blockers from the loopy ewe.
