I would be gloating...

...about just how damn clever I am having executed my magic-toe-up heel-flap-adorned socky masterpiece. I would be looking forward to completing the pair for stashing in the drawer for colder days when I could take them out and think just how damn clever I am:if I hadn't overlooked the fundamental issue of sizing. To the present pile for these then, with little hope that the recipient will be a sock knitter who can marvel at just how damn clever the construction is. Good job that they are purty too! Off to channel some Cat B for the second magic toe and remind myself how damn clever I am :o)

Ah, the tragedy of misjudging one's own feet... I've done it myself more than once.

Very damned clever construction, though!

T. said...

I think they might fit me (hee hee).

Charity said...

Oh, groan! At least this is a problem easily fixed, and just think of all that extra practice you're getting... :o)

Rose Red said...

Oh noes!!! They are so lovely, and so clever!

They are very clever and pretty even if they are destined for some other person's feet.

dreamcatcher said...

Oops - I'm sure they'll find a very good home though!

amanda said...

This is a very 'amanda' thing to do! :D

Bells said...

oh yeah, been there, not exactly there but rather there.

Lovely colour though!

Lynne said...

Very clever indeed!

Marianne said...

Heh, you completely crack me up.
Sitting here wishing I had extraordinarily long toes :^) They are gorgeous, beautiful, and no one, NO ONE gets to take your clever away :^)

Suzie Sews said...

oh I could cry for you, but they look so beautiful.

Kyoko said...

You are indeed very clever to have knitted such a gorgeous socks. AAww, oh well, all you need to do now is to grow your feet long. ;D
Judging the sock size is very difficult I think. I often make them too short...

Kai said...

:D I'm sorry, this made me giggle.

I'll have to put up a big notice when I finally get round to the magic cast on toe up with cat's instructions etc...

Leonie said...

Oh, such a shame. Here's wishing for a suitably impressed present recipient for you!

Rachel said...

Oh man--that indeed is tragic. But I do think you can still brag about the construction!

dr k said...

hehe, i shouldnt laugh really because i am struggling myself with the whole toe up thing, but that is kind of funny....
