Yup, that's the same sock I showed you on Friday, and yup, it looks different. As I mentioned before, I'd gone down a needle size from my usual to knit these, and I wasn't loving the smaller needles or the fabric I was getting, and when I tried the sock on to see how the fit was, it was just a bit too tight. I could get it on, but it was just not going to be comfortable to wear. So I ripped it out.
I've been planning to do contrasting toes from the beginning, but I weighed my sock so far before I ripped it out, and at the rate I was going at least half the foot was going to have to be in the contrast yarn. So this time, I decided to do contrasting cuffs and heels as well, and I am so glad I did. They look so much lighter and springier now, and I was able to get a little extra length in the leg-just an inch, but it's really making a difference for me.
I'm loving knitting these on the larger needles-and now that I'm familiar with the chart, they're zooming along. I'm already past where I was when I ripped out the first time, and it fits perfectly so far. I was nervous starting over from scratch in the last month of the KAL, but I should be able to get these done with just a couple focused knitting days (knock on wood)!
