Eating my Words (Foot-in-Mouth Disease Outbreak)
I have to take back what I said previously about the "Gentleman's Fancy Sock" and me making no mods. I got to the point in the foot where it said, "foot should measure about 8 inches" and -- it's only 7". It's very odd, cuz the leg portion measures exactly what they say it should.
I'm proposing to do another pattern repeat, and then maybe cut back a bit on the following straight section, since the finished foot length is actually about 1/2" longer than I think I want for my BIL. Here's where my notebook should come in handy.
And forget about starting another first sock -- I think I'd better cast on the second one of these right away, my memory being what it is (notebook and all).
