Ever have a pair of socks that you love, but just never find yourself wearing? I sure did. I love my Sleepy Hollow socks, but when I finished the toes, I made them more pointy than some of my other ones without realizing it. Although it doesn't look like it in the picture, they pulled too much towards my big toes and weren't comfortable to wear all day. So they sat in my mend pile until I finally couldn't take it anymore.
At first I thought I'd just take a few rounds out of each sock to make the toe wider. So I placed some markers to help me match the socks.
But when I started taking one apart, I realized that these socks needed a more serious solution. So I took out the entire toe in both socks. I knit a few plain rounds before replacing the toe.
And now they are perfect! I wore them the day after I fixed them.
Anyone else have a sock they need to fix but have been putting off?
