Frogging Day!

Well I was making great progress on my second sock....almost finished the gusset...and then I thought to count stitches....what? why only 64 instead of 68? Seriously I had make 2/3 of a sock with the wrong number of stitches.

It is frogged and in time out!

I just can't face it right now. I do know how this would happen. I cast on one morning in DC in a hurry to have something for the knitting circle....while I do a lot of math....a lot....I not good at counting!

Oh man... I wonder if I would have just had a smaller sock, LOL.

Did you try it on before you ripped it? 64 stitches is the number I always use.

Is this a little drastic for 4 stitches? Oh well, now you'll have the joy of knitting this project again. I do love the yarn.

Poor Leah! Can you define "frogging" for us knitting-illiterates?

but that yarn is beautiful!!!!!!!!!! I would have just had a thinner sock. I know, I sock.

You'll love them all the more when you return to finish them :)

This is one of the reasons I don't knit socks. I would've kept going for 4 stitches...or added some....

I'm figuring out that counting is not really part of maths. Bummer about the sock.

(my verification is somber. Good for this post.)
