For those of you who didn't notice in yesterday's picture (and I know it wasn't easy), my sock didn't fit onto my foot. Apparently, when I decided to count the number of stripes instead of try on my sock, I miscounted (I still don't know how I did this), and started the toe shaping waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyy too early.
I ripped and reknit yesterday, and all is better now. Lesson learned? Try on all socks before beginning toe shaping, even if you are matching stripes.
Pattern: Dublin Bay (I would link, but it's a pdf. Google it if you want it) by Mossy Cottage Knits
Yarn: Vesper sock yarn in the Midnight Knitter colorway.
Needles: ChiaGoo DPNs 2.25mm
Dates: late fall to May 20, 2007 on and off
Thoughts: Love the yarn. Love the striping. The pattern is easy enough to remember and to give some interest to an otherwise plain sock, without messing up the striping pattern.
