That’s how I’d define my relationship………with this sock.
1. Start with Silver’s Sock Class Pattern for the cuff.
2. Forethought heel.
3. Knit the foot. (how long? The sock owner-to-be has tiny feet. We’re talking elf feet here. I’ll just knit for a bit and worry about that later. That always works out fine.)
3a. Realize that I don’t know how long the afterthought heel is going to be, so I don’t know when to start the toes even with foot measurements.
3b. Use the second ball of yarn to knit the afterthought heel so I can measure the foot.
3c. Rip out two inches of knitting so the sock will actually fit. (no worries, that knitting kept me from being angry whilst I waited on various things, it was for a good cause).
4. Knit the toes a la Silver. (Look at this sock and doubt that there’s any way it will fit. This is what I get for going all Dr. Frankenstein on a couple of sock patterns.)
I’m sure it just needs a good blocking.
