The saga of the slipper socks

Between this, that and the other thing, I decided late Sunday it was time to attempt something in the realm of sock construction. I bought this Turkish Bed Socks pattern and sat up into the wee hours knitting it out of some bright green, variegated (!) Noro yarn I bought at the Tokyo Fish Market, adjusting for worsted weight yarn and size 6 needles. I slightly underestimated the cast-on edge and then overcompensated on the instep and wound up with something fit for a large man. But well-made! So Monday night I frogged it and went back to the half-finished Tootsie Toaster — ripped out the toe section and redid it in the round. Reader, my right foot has never been happier. This toaster has no mate yet, so for now I’m just carrying it around on a pillow like Cinderella’s slipper.
