I'm not sure how this happened, but it looks like the beautiful sock that I have been knitting on is too small. It's 72 stitches and it is too small. I am very, very fortunate to have a son who has feet just slightly smaller than mine. He wants the socks. I'll just have to try again with more stitches or bigger needles or both after I finish this first pair. At least Joe will have a super pair of socks!
