I thought I might cast on for the second attempt at a sock for the swap over the weekend but I didn’t have the right needles with me so it didn’t happen until a few days later. I cast on for this sock on Tuesday but being a little under the weather I spent a fair bit of time ripping back and redoing the same several rows a number of times. Yesterday I finally hit my stride only to realize I needed to rip back half a pattern repeat. Darn! They are so pretty though and I *think* the size is better this time around.
