Sooooooooo I've messed something up with my purse sock. Specifically, the first one I completed is too short. Or, rather, I followed the pattern for the second sock and when I got to the part that said I should start the toe, I held them next to each other and...
Do I take out the toe of the finished sock and make it longer, or do I take out the inch-and-a-half of extra length on the sock I haven't finished yet, even though I know it's right?
Of course, I haven't actually bothered to try on the completed sock and see if it's too small (I'm guessing it is), so maybe one of these days I'll get around to doing that and make the decision that way.
Meanwhile, the socks will sit on the living room coffee table and I will stare at them with mild disgust.
