I know you don't know who you are but I just have to say sorry your sock did look like this yesterday(actually a little longer than that) Note how there are no needles in the end of that sock... It's b/c I've had to Frog it! Just so you know I'm using the river rapids sock pattern from here it's a very pretty pattern.
I was looking at the note you sent and saw that your foot is 7.5 around so I measured my sock that I was knitting and it was only 6 so I thought that would be too tight for fitting into . So I started again and didn't like how it was looking so again I tried 3 times last night before I put it down and finally again this AM.... See
I'm knitting toe up so it's toes look ok. I can't kitchner you see. (it's my first time knitting toe up...I'm using a short row toe... And hopefully a short row heel) Thank you to knitty for having this wonderful article! and also this pattern from Wendy (generic toe up sock) is helping me also! I'm a super perfectionist when trading/making things like this... So that explains why I've started so many times... I'm hoping I'm going to be done with this sock by sept 15th to send it out! I'm super nervous about it not fitting also... Have you seen my fiasco with the sock for my DD#1 that is now a sock for DD#2? It doesn't have a mate yet.
so I promise you, my sockapal2-za pal... that I will work on your socks till they are done **trying** hard not to get distracted into other projects...
