Witch Socks

So, last post I wrote about my Elf Socks I am making for an Auntie. I had a little problem.. When I read the directions for closing the toe, it said something to this effect: "Round 1, Knit. Round 2, Decrease at the beginning and the end of Needle 1, and then at the beginning and end of Needle 2. Round 3, Knit. Repeat rounds 1 and 2 until there are 14 stitches per needle." So here is where I end up making Witch Socks. I knit with my socks on 4 needles, not 2. So I decreased on my 4 needles, and then I suddenly had 14 stitches on each of my 4 needles. Then I began to graft my sock toes together, and well, they look a little flat. They look like there isn't any place for toes to be in these socks..

Have you ever seen the movie or read the book Witches by Roald Dahl? It is a children's book that used to really freak me out. The witches pose as everyday people, but they don't have toes. They turned some kid into a mouse and wanted to destroy all children. But the scary part is the no toes. I made Witch Socks! Oh, and the witches wear wigs because they are bald, scary, demony, hags.

So after I grafted my sock toes together, I lost a whole hour of time ungrafting them and then reattaching the yarn ends and completing the sock until the toe looks like a toe actually fits inside it.

That's all.
