The plan was to show you a finished sock. With 40 sts remaining in the round while working the toe decreases it occurred to me that the foot looked a bit short. Maybe I should try it on? Yes, it was short ... quite a bit short ... a lot short even. Nothing to do but to rip back and add another pattern repeat to the foot. At least I hadn't finished the sock - after all, ripping out after grafting and after weaving in ends is considerably more painful.
The first sock fits perfectly, but the credit for that goes to the project notes from other Ravellers. Many noted that the sock came out too big on the suggested 2.5 mm needles so I opted to shift down one size to knit the leg on 2.25mm needles and then shift down one more size starting at the heel turn to work the foot on 2.0mm needles. That's done the trick!
It's Thanksgiving here in Canada. Gavin is sick so we're having a quiet, stay at home weekend for the most part. Maybe I can finish up sock one and get a start on sock two?
