If you're squeamish, don't look

Remember these?

They've been on Grandma Coco's mind a lot lately. What to do with them? They're too nice to wear (although Kate might disagree). GC thought she might give the socks away, but didn't feel quite up to the Lance Armstrong-ness that this would require....."Mistake? what mistake? They're perfect. Why, I looked up the definition, and I can assure you, there's nothing wrong with these socks."

So this morning she got out her trusty scissors.

(Here, if you're easily upset, look at this instead . . . 

. . . and think calming thoughts. Deep breaths.)

So, which one will it be?

We vote for the K2, P2 to take one for the team. 
We like the single rib better, we think. 
It's daintier. (It's also the way the pattern was written. Duh!)


The surgery, that is. What's the prognosis for the patient?
You'll have to check back tomorrow to find out.


  1. Oh, that hurt! My teeth were actually clinching, as though I was doing the cutting. Bet your talented hands will make it all better by tomorrow however!

  2. If it was me cutting these I would definitely be looking away. With you doing the cutting I know that you know exactly how you are going to *fix* these very pretty socks.

  3. hahahaha - that really was hard to "watch"! I don't think I could do it. I can't even think my seedlings or pinch back a plant!

  4. I can't believe you did that...!!!

  5. I wouldn't have thought to just cut it back, i would have unravelled if at all possible, but then, I just throw away my errors, so nobody sees them and therefore they are not errors! Mind you it costs more my way...
