What are the chances that I would knit a sock, on the same size needles, the same yarn, and the same pattern, and it still be too small? I had been working diligently on the second Monkey sock that I started well over a month ago, in Koigu. Last night I finished the heel, did the gusset, did the foot and started the toe decreases. Today I did the last few decreases and finished it. To my dismay, the sock is too small. I don’t know what happened. I always copy my notes from the first sock, so that my second sock is the right size. Where did I go wrong?
My choices are:
a. frog the entire sock and start over
b. frog back to the heel and make the heel and foot longer, (which is obviously the problem, but I don’t know if it’s due to me possibly knitting with smaller needles – I am sure I used size 1’s)
c. frog both socks and start over, just to be sure)
d. frog both socks and make something else with the Koigu
What would you do?
