What a pain in the butt were these socks! I am so happy that they are completed. I tried following the directions. Honest. I did. But I didn’t like the way they were going. The toe didn’t fit my toes. I wanted my usual rounded toe. My toes demanded it. But these are toe up socks. And my toes said, “So?” I started the second sock from the top. I used a simple knit two, purl two rib. I t looked much better so I took out the rib oon the first sock and changed it, too. I thought about the heel, but I went with the same afterthought one. I’d liked the contrast. I made my usual rounded toe and tried it on. it fit just right. Happy toes. Happy feet. Happy me.
Removing the unwanted toe was time-consuming. At times I wondered why I was doing this. I thought about tossing them. But I couldn’t. They have to be right. They have to be finished. I have to be satisfied. That’s all there is to it.
I’ll be working on the copper colored scarf next.
