One of these things is totally WRONG. Yes. My brain has failed me.
What a disaster. Between the Packers' loss on Saturday and my sock failure, the weekend was a bust. Of course, I didn't realize my error until I was weaving in the ends on my second sock. I thought to myself...."huh, there seem to be fewer ends than I recall on the first sock." Sure enough, there are.
I've considered the surgical options for repair on these, but the slip stitch pattern makes it a pretty risky endeavor. I'd probably make things worse. Alas, I've accepted that ripping and re-knitting is my best approach. (SIGH)
On a brighter note. Thank you so much for you lovely comments on Mike's hat. He read them all, and he blushed a couple times. He now feels confident that he deserves a recurring feature post on the blog, being as he was such a smash hit. :-D
