Pornographic Sock aka When Smart Knitters do Dumb Things.

Uh-oh Sock

Ok folks, get your minds out of the gutter. What you see before you is a sock, albeit a struggling one.

I'm working from a great pattern on the Lion Brand Yarn site, and I just happened to have some stash in the wool they suggest so I'm making a warm pair of socks for my fiance.

The problem? The fiance specifically requested Geisha socks so he could keep his feetsies warm and still throw on flip-flops if he had to go outside, or down to the unfinished basement. So I thought I'd improvise when it got to the toe.

Now I've never made mittens, and I didn't look at a pattern. So now I have a sock that is too short for a male foot, with a big toe the size of my forefinger. Hmmm... back to the drawing board.
