In which my dream is prophetic.

The other night I had one of those knitter’s nightmares. You know the one, where you knit and knit and knit your socks-in-progress but never make any progress on it. Imagine my horror the next evening when I settled in to work on them and realized that the damn foot is a half-inch too long (note to self: my short-row heel is two inches long, not 1.5) making them unacceptably loose and baggy around the instep. I thought about just pressing on and maybe giving these socks as a gift (I mean, after all, they are bound to fit SOMEONE), but y’all, I love these socks. Seriously, dat orange! And so today my 2 toe-up socks went from this:

to this:

(That is the superfluous half-inch waiting to be frogged.)

Clearly, I can see the future so here’s your lotto numbers: 05-11-14-20-31 / 16
