I have excellent frogging skills

I was knitting along, minding my own business. I worked on Mom's mock cable socks at SnB last night. They looked like they might be too small even though I went by the length. I continued to knit anyway. I then proceeded to FUBAR the heel flap (ok, I could have just ripped out the heel and fix it, but I was already frustrated with the sock, so I declared it FUBAR). Then I tried the sock on, and it fit me perfectly. That is all fine and dandy, except for the minor detail that Mom's feet are 3 sizes bigger than mine. I had initially planned to only frog down past the gusset and just make the socks longer. After long consideration (a whole 30 seconds), I just decided to frog the whole sock. I wasn't really happy with it anyway (it almost never takes me a month and a half to knit half of a sock). I looked through Wendy's book last night, and I found a few patterns that could be cute with the yarn I'm using (Tempted Good Grrl Circle of Friends). I guess I'll be starting fresh this weekend.

I'm off to spend the weekend at Tempted's house again. I love going to my happy place. :) I hope everyone has a good weekend!
