TEARS. at the yarn store

I had a BREAKDOWN THIS AFTERNOON. I jinxed the Azure socks. I JINXED THE SHIT OUT OF THEM.

They don’t fit over my ginormous heel.

Apparently, I have a very high instep and need to rip them out. (According to an overbearing woman at the yarn store.)

    (((hugs)))

    I had the same problem…I had to rip out a pair because they fit until I cast off (and I used a stretchy castoff!) and then when I tried to put them on they wouldn’t fit over my heel!

    They were toe-ups, right? Maybe just try a different cast-off, or use bigger needles to cast-off? :/ They’re so pretty, I hope you can make them work!

    All will turn out well. Persevere through the pain. Sorry you inherited big feet.
    Love you,
    mom

    […] These might be the socks that I am the most proud of. They fit. They are pretty. AND THEY FIT. They are somewhat stretched over my ginormous heel, but it is not so horrible that they rival The Great Azure Sock Breakdown of 08. […]
