the eldest only

Poor lonely sock. I knit this over a year ago. Whatever plan I had is long forgotten. It began as a spiral tube sock. Simple. Quick. But the cuff was so bulky that I couldn't imaginge it fitting inside a shoe. So a basic foot was born. The sock was away from home (and patterns) when I decided to shape the toe. Sad, pointy toe. Just looking at that toe and knowing that I would have to rip it back and reshape it sent the sock and all its yarn buddies into exile.
