I couldn't help myself:

I kept staring at the sock for the rest of the day, and finally ripped it back late last night (always a good idea!). I do like the stitch pattern, but I think it will work better with a slightly fuzzier yarn. This is Signature, which has very tight twist, and amazing stitch definition--I think I'd like the rib pattern better in a yarn with a little less definition.

I was telling Kevin that even though you guys thought it looked good, there were gigantic, unbearable problems that just weren't visible in a picture. My argument was slightly undermined when he pointed out that he'd seen it in person (as did Annie), and not seen these supposedly gigantic, unbrearable problems (neither did Annie), but I stand by it anyway: I needed to rip due to gigantic, unbearable, invisible problems.

I tried a bunch of other patterns without liking them either, but I think I've finally found one that might work. Maybe. Unless I decide to switch back to the ribs and eyelets, with some kind of invisible modification to fix the invisible problem.

Ah, well, invisible problems. Those are the worst. Very hard to repair.

Perhaps detecting and/or finding the invisible solution is another of your super powers??

I hope you find something you like that works!!

I loved the pattern you had going in the previous post! Do that one again. :)
