One day, I will learn to look carefully at a sock before weaving in the ends. Yesterday, it seems, was not that day.
I had just finished watching Glee while doing the toe decreases and grafting the final seam. I neatly wove in the ends, turned the sock right side out, and put on my snazzy pair of socks.
Something didn’t look right. It took a minute to figure out what it was (and move past the Denial stage). The patterning didn’t match.
Somehow, on the second sock, I zigged when I should have zagged after the heel turn.
Wollmeise comes in a extra-large skein: 150g instead of the usual 100. My finished sock weighs 42g, and I have over 70g left. I would rather knit a whole third sock than rip out that woven in end, frog, and reknit the entire foot with the kinked-up yarn. I’m just not quite ready to cast on yet.
