Sock Update and The Sock Project

Change of plans on the socks.  I have been knitting on these beautiful black stockinette socks for my SO, and I had him try them on tonight only to find that his feet are too big for the socks!  Particularly, the distance from his heel to the top of his foot is too big for the socks I am making.  When he tried them on, they gaped where the heel work met the front of the sock.  He would wear them out in no time.  *Sigh* *Sad-face*

So I guess that I am going to have to finish these lovely socks in the right length for myself.  Life really is soo hard.  I was hoping to make a nice present for someone else, but I am actually making a nice present for myself.  I guess it's not so bad after all.

Luckily, this fits nicely into my new great idea:  The Sock Project.  I am going to try to make a pair of socks every month for a year.  So these are just the first of 12 pair.  I am counting them for the month of March.  Now I just have to figure out how and where I need to make increases to make socks that fit him.  If I figure it out, I will self-publish the pattern.
