Time Out

I successfully finished one of the toe socks.

There are five toes, and they all seem to be appropriately sized. The little toe looks big in this picture, but I think it's an optical illusion caused by the way the others are folded.

I was feeling good about this and promptly cast on for the second sock. Twisted rib cuff, done! Stockinette body--done!

I reached the point to start the heel flap. Tra la la.

Let's see. 64 stitches, so 32 for the heel flap. I want to start it at a k3 so the top of the foot will have 8 repeats of k3, p1 rib--


K3, p1 r--

Oh, crap.

I knit the second sock in stockinette and the first sock in ribbing.

I'll rip out the leg and start again, but right now the sock is in time out. I cannot allow this sort of deviousness to go unpunished.

I think after this I'm going to knit something that doesn't come in pairs.
