Oops....I Did it Again


I don't know what's come over me. I don't seem to be able to think straight about anything anymore. I took this photo planning a "woo hoo look what I've finished" post but instead it's just another fail and I'm not talking about all the joins I had to make because of the knots and the running out of yarn thing. 

I hate gifting socks with joins because I just know they will come apart one day. I've never had it happen myself but I'd hate it if it did. 

I'm kicking myself today because I made them too short in the foot. How did I not notice this? I measured. I swear I did but you know how knitting lies. Just looking at them should have been enough for my brain to realize this but it didn't. I could rip the toes out and knit on but I'm not. That would be just one join too many and they fit me so there's that.

It's not like I don't have plenty of yarn in the stash to try again but all the same I'm pretty darn disgusted with myself at the moment. I couldn't manage one pair of decent man socks this year. Not. One. Pair. 


  1. Oh Deb. Don't be so hard on you. What wouId you say to me? I Iove your finish. Put them away, and pu11 them out in a week and you might 1ike them! That happens to m e. And I worry with knots too!!!!!!

  2. The year is not over yet! Obviously this pair wanted to be yours.

  3. What Val said. the year still has months to go and they fit you! Yippee! A new pair of socks is a great gift!

  4. Boy, do I know what you mean! You're right--you have a new pair of socks-what's bad about that! lol
