Socks Akimbo October 2, 2006

That’s right. As if too long was not embarrassing enough… next came socks akimbo.  Of course I emailed my sock wars target (SheriO) to apologize for the size of her bright red socks. She wrote me back telling me that only *one* of the socks I sent was too big. One fit perfectly but the other was three quarters of an inch too long. *sigh* That’s it. Only short row heels from now on!

Just think of all the things SheriO could hide in that humongous heel – a tiny rolled up tape measure (to ensure that her socks are never too long!), five pennies,  a marshmallow, or some extra kibble for the cat (I have no idea if she really has one or not). Practicality might suggest a cotton ball for extra cushion, or even some milkweed fluff for squishy softness.

Have I learned from this experience? Well yes, but after reading Yarn Harlot this morning, I am overwhelmed with the desire to knit arrrgyle socks, but maybe this experiment in heel flap sock knitting is telling me to slow down.

Must. Not. Add. Another. Work. In. Progress.

Back to the shawl. I will be strong.
