The socks, they are finished

The socks are finished but are a study in why you must make notes while knitting. If you look closely at the toes one is much wider than the other. I assumed that I changed the pattern, which I didn't, so I made a different toe on the second sock.

I will probably go back and fix it although right now I'm mad and won't. This is what happens every time I make a mistake, which is quite often. I think," Oh no one will notice. It will be fine. I'm not ripping. Oh it's driving me crazy. I better rip. Oh but I don't feel like it..." until I finally get a little distance and decide it is worth ripping because it will haunt me.

Next up the Shetland Triangle by Evelyn Clark in a Piecework mag. I'm doing it in my purple silk and merino handspun and it is pretty close to finishing.

I'm the same way Elizabeth. I have to fix a mistake once I've seen it, but a little distance sure helps!

well, does forgetting which toe shaping equal forgetting to sign my name?
