In my newfound sock zeal, I went too far. I had mislaid my pattern and didn’t want to take the time to find it when I decided to knit a few rounds early this morning. I measured the sock and it was 7 inches from cast-on. My memory was that I was to do 8 and then start the heel flap. So I knit another inch and put away my knitting to get ready for the day (having already spent roughly 20 minutes on the Anniversary Sweater). Then I found the pattern and, much to my chagrin, discovered that the heel flap is to start after 7 inches. Argh! (It’s the men’s sock pattern that is 8 inches.)
So I’ll be frogging an inch later today, and then I’ll start my first heel flap ever. I hate frogging, because I’m always worried that I’ll somehow mess up the work I’ve already done – dropped stitch, twisted stitch, or some other error. So I’m extra cautious which means it goes a little slow. But once I’m done, I’ll be very excited to get started on the heel flap. Sock-knitting is so much fun!
