I need to start playing sad violin right about now. I was so excited to have finished the first sock of my dad’s Christmas present. My husband made a comment that the sock looked extra huge. So when my dad was helping with my floor I had him try it on.
You guys it sagged EVERYWHERE. It was loose on the leg, the heel and the foot! I had no choice but to resign it to the frog pond. I realistically need to take out eight stitches from the stitch count. And it’s my own fault. I was knitting DK weight yarn using a sport weight sock stitch count. (Read: too many stitches for that thick of yarn.)
So during a Netflix re-watch of a favorite episode of NCIS I turned the above sock int these….two balls of ramen. One sock ball and one heel ball because I cut in an afterthought heel. Sigh….
I still want these for his Christmas so I need to get back on them. But I may need a mourning period first…
I feel your pain. 😢
Ugh I hate it when I screw up stitch counts because of yarn weight:( Hope try two goes better
OH NO, hate when that happens. You will get this
Hate it when this happens! But you have a way forward and lots of time. It is still beautiful yarn!

How frustrating! I’m sure next time they’ll turn out just perfect.
