I *ALMOST* had a sock…

I’d finally gotten the hang of the lace, and I’d learned to relax my hands, and it looked fairly good…from the heel up.  The heel itself wasn’t wonderful, and I made a couple more mistakes in the leg and I knew the second sock would be so much better they wouldn’t even look like a pair.

Plus the lace at the toe was too tight and rather ugly.

So I asked a bunch of friends and got their opinion…and now the sock is a hank of drying yarn hanging on a hook on my bathroom door, weighed down by a  heavy bead necklace, and I’ve started another using the second skein.

And, as I suspected, it looks *much* better already. 

I’m rather glad I’m only making one sock at a time with the magic loop.
