..I've listened to the wise inner knitter and stopped admiring the lovely yarn and
concluded that too tight (much like too loose) is something that you can do something about.
I've been ignoring the smallness of these pretty Wollmeisers for a while now. I abandoned the tricksy pattern so I could move on from the tangle; and I so wanted the plain socks to fly along that I didn't give in to the nagging until I considered my Tetsubou. What seems like a long time in the knitting is nothing compared to how long I hope the garment will be with me. I'd like the pride in the item to be untainted by a feeling that I should have done something a little different in the making. With force I could get this on but really who wants to have to lever themselves in to their cosy socks? So to the frogpond with these - a healthy dose of GAAK for me and hopefully third time is the charm for the socks that are resisting being knitted!
They are so pretty - but that's not much good if they don't fit, is it. You did The Right Thing by frogging!
And I'm sure 3rd time will be the charm!
