done and undone


done?, originally uploaded by gradschoolknitter.

It would appear that my twisted socks are done, right? WRONG. While I am wearing two completed socks, the first one (which would be the left one) is too short. I added another pattern repeat to the right and it fits much better, as illustrated by the photo* below:

this one is too small

If you look closely, the right sock seems to fit much better to the contours of my foot, while the left sort of bulges as it attempts to stretch to fit. So while they look done, I'll be taking the toe apart today and redoing it - AGAIN, mind you.

If you haven't been following the Midsummer Day's Dream series over on Lighting Little Fires, you should go check it out. My entry is up today, on traveling and knitting, along with another crafter's entry on tatting and backpacking.

*How many times more will you have to listen to me apologize for crappy pictures taken in Spain? Not that many, actually, since I will be headed back across the pond in 17 days! Don't get me wrong, it's been great, but I'm definitely looking forward to being "home" too. Anyway, it's raining this morning, so sorry for the bad photos.
