The Agony of deFeet

Here lies the Chevron Yarntini sock. She was agood sock; she had lovely stripes.
Unfortunately her stupid forthought/afterthought heel did not have enough give to accommodate my rather tall arches. (And, I had dropped a stitch near the heel that ran like a red T-shirt in a load of white laundry when I tried on the sock-in-progress. )

Sniff. I was over half way to the toe decreases too.

I cast on for a new pattern last night. I use the term "pattern" loosely because this time I am going to attempt to use the Yarn Harlot's sock "recipe" instead of following a specific sock pattern as though it includes directions on how to diffuse a bomb.

We'll see what happens. Have a great weekend!

One does hate to see such a pretty thing crash & burn to lie in a heaving pile on the floor.

On the upside, your floors look fantastic! Congratulations on a great-looking project.
