Frogging epic

I decided to totally rip out the Sockotta mishap. Keeping just 10 rows didn't seem worth the effort. I played with my ball winder to neaten it up then SET IT ASIDE. They will reemerge as socks at some future date. Now I only have 3 pairs in progress.

Once again, it is driven home that you should not get overconfident and assume things are going well, even if it's your 50-something pair.

This also confirms my practice of doing one sock at a time. When doing a new pattern or technique, I finish the entire 1st sock and wear it a bit to make sure it's comfortable and fits correctly. This fiasco could have been twice as bad.
