The jaywalker kicked my ass again last night. I finally had turned the heel and was getting ready to knit up the reverse heel flap. So I tried it on again. (I've done this about 75 times during the process). This was the moment when it went from "kinda loose" to "too damned big". I should have known better than to use the stargazer lily. It's sock garden you know. Of the curs-ed sock garden variety you might say.
I now have a very misshapen re-wound skein of stargazer lily. Bummer. I might have to abandon this pattern. I don't know.
