I knitted the toe of the second sock and tried it on. Too short! Oh, forgot to do a regular round in between each decreasing round. (The result of my chatting on the phone while knitting.)
And ... oops, forgot the reinforcing thread. Rrrrrrrrrip. The first sock was such a breeze. This one has been a series of ripping-out exercises.
But the toe is done (again) now and Kitchenered. And the cast-on row has been taken out and the cuff is back on needles. Just have to figure out how to make the pattern match as I knit upward. Photo later.
