So… last month I finished Nessie Sock #2. I am very happy with that progress. However…
As you can see, the heel on Nessie Sock #1 is wrong. It’s way too shallow. It’s easier to see in comparison to the correct heel on Sock #2, so I guess I can’t get too mad at myself for not seeing it when I originally knit Sock #1.
And this means it’s time for the foot part of Sock #1 to hit the frog pond.
It’s a wrench, but I wouldn’t wear a pair of socks so obviously mis-matched in fit. And the fit on the second sock (with the correct heel) is so much better than the fit on the first sock (with the wrong heel) that I know it will be worth it in the long run.
Still. I hate frogging colorwork.
In any case, though, the frogging part is over and now I just have to (get to?) re-knit the heel and foot of the first sock. It’s a fun pattern and fun yarn (which holds up to the abuse I’ve heaped upon it) so that’s good. I do look forward to being able to wear these this winter once it gets cold. (These are definitely winter socks. The colorwork makes them too warm for anything else in my neck of the woods.)
They’re still fun to knit, so I’m enjoying working on them. I especially love the little fishes on the toes.
