Again...I Learn These Lessons So You Don't Have To...
I ripped the whole thing out and started again. I did the leg, the heel flap, turned the heel and was half done the foot before I realized it was freakishly big. Again, I dug out the original sock, only to find that although I had documented #3 needles, I had actually used twos. So I tore the whole thing back out and started yet again.Back to the drawing board. Lessons learned:
1. Don't drink and then record things in Ravelry. Impaired judgement and blurred vision apparently makes it difficult to distinguish needle sizes.
2. Don't watch a Dr. Who marathon while knitting the second sock. The lovely David Tennant and his ongoing battle with the Darliks makes you not want to tear your eyes away and look at the sock you're working on, let alone compare it to the original until it's way way way too late.
3. Just knit the %^&* second sock right after you knit the first one!
