This is why a knitter should never set their knitting down & go off to do a bit of housework.
See the white bit of yarn stretched oddly from one needle to another? Notice how it's attached to both needles? Argh! I knit across one needle, set the sock down, went off to load yet another load of laundry into the washer, came back, picked up the knitting & started knitting on the wrong needle.
This poor sock seems doomed! The first sock went so well. Granted, I started the first sock last summer & it sat lonely & ignored in the UFO pile for month after month, but once I picked it back up & started knitting on it again, the first sock was a breeze. I immediately cast on the second sock & patted myself on the back for not suffering from Second Sock Syndrome. And then, knitting fail after knitting fail. Oh well. It's not like I'm on a deadline. And this Felici yarn is happy to be ripped & reknit. And, despite all the problems with this second sock, I have rounded the heel and am heading down the foot towards the toes.
