So May is apparently the month of the frog. I was all proud of myself last night when I reached the end of the last half pattern repeat on the Embossed Leaves socks before I could start the toe. And then I checked the measurement, and it was a full inch shorter then it should have been. Because I'm an idiot, and when the earlier measurements lined up with sock number 1, I stopped checking. So, I couldn't even pull the dang thing up over my heel, and when I put the two two next to each other, the gauge was quite clearly different. Needless to say, that sock is now frogged (and I was almost done, sob!!). At this point, I'm disgusted with myself enough that I may have to work on another pair of socks before going back to this one.
I really need this month to be over, because it clearly isn' t good for my knitting.
