See? This is why I blog. So everyone can make me feel better when craft disaster strikes. Or, y'know, craft minor error. Thanks for all the words of encouragement!
The Big Sock is resting for a moment. When I feel up to it, I'll un-kitchener the toe, do some measuring, and add some length--as someone pointed out, it's possible I was unknowingly knitting a sock for my big-footed mom. (Her description, not mine!)
And I picked up my sari silk purse again last night, and it didn't look so bad after all. I'm going to soldier on and see where it gets me. It would be worse to have a purse that was too small than one that was too big, I think. It's still not photographing well, though. I think I need to try to get it in some natural light today.
I'm making great progress on the kilt hose. I've got about 20 rows to go before I can start the heel.
To put it in perspective, I've got about 135 rows done so far.
Check it out--it looks like a sleeve! Hooray for progress!
