also, boo hoo.
i turned the heel on sock #1 a couple of days ago, and thought that there was really a chance i could get these done. i still think i can get them done, i just don't think tg would be able to wear them.
the foot is halfway done, and i thought "i bet i can try this on without dropping any stitches now." so i did. and i discovered that getting it past my own heel was a problem. i think i've been pulling the contrast colour too tightly, because there is no stretch. none. if it won't fit over my foot, it certainly won't fit over his.
