Had a most frustrating evening last night. I finally made it to the toe of the sock I've been struggling to finish, trying it on to check the fit.
Then, taking it off, the cast on edge snapped.
Not figuring out any way to repair it, I frogged almost 2 1/2 months of intermittent knitting; washed the resulting skein, and plan to rewind it so as to start all over again.
Most frustrating...especially since I've been sort of burning out on socks lately. [Don't worry - I won't quit knitting them, but I was looking forward to starting sock #2 and have this pair out of the way in a relatively timely manner.]
Oh well...that's just how it goes sometimes. The bright side is that I could note some changes that will make for a better sock on the second attempt.
