Remember this???? My pumpkin socks that I could NOT wait to finish???? WELL.....a funny thing happened on the way to casting off........
I was down to the final few rounds of decreasing the toe and I lost a needle....yep....the little sucker just pulled right off!!!!! I am a very tight knitter and despite using a darning needle I could NOT pick up all the stitchs!!! I kept S.L.O.W.L.Y. ripping back in hopes of finding a place that I was able to pick up each and every one of the *% stitches......but no such luck!! I just wasn't able to save the sock despite my valiant efforts!! I didn't even get a pic of it before I frogged it!!! Sniff, sniff!!........and I was SOOOO excited because this was my FIRST sock to complete (almost) that wouldn't require darning before I could wear it!! LOL!! It was the closest to perfection I have ever achieved!!!!!!
BUT......I will be casting this yarn back on as soon as I can get the blue sock off my circs (will post a pic of that sock in a day or two)......but till then I leave you this.
Aaaa.....Waaaa Waaaa Waaaa!!! Sniff, Sniff!!!!!!!!!!!!!
