Okay. You're Right...

I slept on it.
I read all your comments.
I Plurked about it.

Wendy told me to add 1/4 inch to the heel before turning.

The general concensus was: FROG IT.

Here is the patient, pre-surgery, prepped and ready:

And here, the deed is done, the amputation of the heel complete:

I feel like a murderer.

But I won't on down the road. I know it's the best action to take...because you all are right, I would never have been happy with it and the socks would not have been worn. THAT would have been criminal. I waited a long time to find Hot Flash STR and I LOVE the

A good friend chose this yarn from my stash and wound it for me. (Someone who had never wound sock yarn on a swift and ball winder, someone who has never knit, but someone who is very important to me and took interest in my weirdly fascinating sock-knitting obsession - my words, not my friend's! - long enough to do this...and has continued to ask about the socks and take interest in my trials and tribulations with them!)

I promised to make Wendy's Seaweed Socks to pattern. And I will. With about 3/4 of an inch extra knitted into the sock - you know, I wouldn't have told you I had a longer than normal foot! *wink*

But I don't think I'll do anything more on this sock today. I've got a bit of a "bug" and don't really feel like concentrating on anything more than sleeping.

(And btw, the frogging was easy, the decision to frog was the hard part.)

Oh. And for a reward? I ordered Rowan Magazine 44 from Webs - my treat...wish I had the entire collection of Rowan Magazines, and not just the Fall issues from year 29 and now 30...but I'm NOT made of money, so I won't be surfing ebay for them! There are several patterns that I am thinking I may have to appears to be a "log cabin-style" shawl or blanket made of squares. Now you KNOW that's going to appeal to me, right?

Off for another nap.

LOL!!! I like the caption re: pre-surgery, too funny! I hate to start any project over but sometimes it can't be helped. I'm sure you will be glad you took the time to do it right!

Ms. Mitz is inquiring as to when the Meezer is starring in her own video???

Frogging can be painful, but sometimes necessary.

I hope you feel better soon!

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
