Failure to read

So, I was working my way through the second sock of the Riverbed Architecture socks that I’m working on and the time came to start the heel. So I read through the instructions twice, and realized that if I was reading them correctly this time, I’d done the first sock incorrectly. I didn’t do the additional increases necessary before starting the heel. Yeah, the part that is clearly stated, after “if you are doing toe up socks do this” or words ot that effect.

Now, these socks are custom fit. I’ve been having C try them on throughout the process. Post toe, before the heel turn, after the turn, and after sock #1 was done. Seemed fine. But now that I look at it closely, I think I see what I needed to do:

So, I’m going to do the second sock the way I think it should be done, and take it from there.

So, here’s what I’ve got so far:

So, let’s see what happens. Either way, I’ll be reknitting a sock. But I think it’s the best way to go.
