I know, I know...I'll never get anywhere if I keep starting over. I just wasn't happy with it and what's the point of working on something if it isn't making you happy? I'm going to cast on again (thank God for band concerts!) and give it my all. Keith says I really need to commit to finishing the sock this time. I think he's worried about me! I also wound the portion of the skein that I'd already used into a ball hoping it would stay neat. I did my darndest to keep it loose, but it's still too tight. I'll have to tug to get it out as I knit, at least for a while. In the words of Sponge Bob, "pourquoi?!?"
