it's no mystery

I wear a size 8.
In both feet.
My mystery socks are taking me a little longer than expected. I guess I just enjoyed the pattern so much, I didn't want to stop. Time to rip.
Have a great day!

Isn't it so easy to get in the groove knitting socks? Not easy to get that perfect fit anyway. Have fun doing it again :-).

Celestial said...

well, I've recently done something similar, but I'll blame mine on gauge interpretation. While knitting socks for hubby I made the foot 14" long instead of 12"! I kept thinking they looked a little big...

Frogging makes you a stronger person :)

Sarah Jackson said...

oops!

Frogdancer said...

Oh no!

i'm just laughing...i wear a size 10 and i couldn't wait to get to the place where i could stop and there you are just rolling right along. love that color...very nice...very wearable!

Jennifer said...

Uh oh! Besides the length difficulty, they sure look nice.

Lisa said...

Seriously good for me to know you still rip.

the nest said...

I feel your pain... though the socks look great!

Sandy said...

You are a better person than me! :)
I meant to ask you, can you not shrink them in any way without felting them?

Trisha said...

I'm sorry but I am laughing. That picture is so funny. I like the color you chose for your socks. Very pretty. So glad to have mine done and I am so tempted to start another pair in a solid colored yarn.

Elizabeth said...

That's hilarious! I'm getting close to that stage so I guess it's time to start coming up for a length check now and then.

Lovely colour choice!

Seanna Lea said...

I get so tired of knitting the foot (only a problem knitting cuff down) that I am always checking that last couple of inches to make sure it is just barely long enough for me. I can't imagine knitting it longer by accident!

Pam said...

Too funny!

OMG I did exactly the same thing!

Suzanne said...

Oh man!

MadMad said...

Are they 100 percent wool? Could you shrink them? (I'm always looking for the easy way out...)

The first pair of socks I ever knit were a "tad" bit on the big side. Kind of got caught up in the knitting and not paying attention to the length...I left them and now use them as my scuff around the house socks. This looks nice and once corrected will be perfect!!!

Hilary said...

Oh no! Well, enjoying the pattern is a good thing.

Alison said...

Oh dear, I hate it when that happens...
I was cruising on my socks, and then I stopped to knit a sweater, poor neglected socks...

Happy knitting-
ali

Christina said...

The pattern looks lovely! I want to knit some socks, too!

Jodi said...

Oh no! The sock is just gorgeous, though. All that nice texture.

Hermione J. Schwartz said...

I had the opposite problem. I am loving the sock so much I wanted to wear it already, even if it was just the one. I should have added another foot repeat but didn't. My sock *just* fits, if I finesse it on my heel and curl my toes just a little. =]

kim said...

You know I'm not a big sock knitter, but these I want to make. I have to say that I admire your "rip back" determination. This is the point where I chuck them into a bin never to be looked at again!

I really love those socks!

Jessica said...

That happens to me a bunch- I get knitting and I just don't stop and suddenly I have a super giant sock!

oops. :)

Love reading your blog - question, did you in the past have a recipe for 'peppered nuts"? If so, please let me know what month I can find it again.

Thanks!

i would be happy to share the peppered nuts recipe........

tiennie said...

Heehee! I sorta did the same thing with my size 5 feet. Luckily my friend with size 7s wanted them!

Mama Urchin said...

I think I would look for a likely larger footed candidate but then you have to part with your socks. I love them in grey.

raining sheep said...

Yup, being an avid sock knitter I have been there and done that - several times. However, that pattern is awesome - I would want to keep knitting on as well :)

Kristyn Knits said...

too large or not, they look great!

Heather said...

LOL! Or send them to someone who has a bigger foot!

Knitosaurus said...

I would so not be frogging those, I'd be giving them to someone with a bigger foot--wayyy too lazy to redo an already finished sock!

There are definitely a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That may be a great point to deliver up. I supply the ideas above as normal inspiration however clearly there are questions just like the one you deliver up where an important thing can be working in trustworthy good faith. I don?t know if greatest practices have emerged around issues like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Anyway, in my language, there are usually not much good source like this.
