What's Wrong With This Picture??

Apart from the fact that they are both different, there is something terribly wrong with one of these socks.

I won't keep you in suspense, the beautiful blue fair isle sock just wont go over my ankle, therefore I messed up somewhere. They look the same so what's the problem? The blue socks, which are 100 percent wool don't stretch one iota, whereas the red ones, which is a sock yarn, stretches.

So, I am going to frog them and maybe reknit using more stitches. I haven't decided, right now I'm really, really pissed.

I had the same problem with a fair-isle hat I made and also a sweater. The sweater was so funny because the fair isle part didn't stretch but the rest did. Looked ok till I put it on. Now I stretch it as I knit to make sure I'm not knitting it too tight since it doesn't stretch at all. But boy, your socks look pretty!

I am so sorry for you... You are right, fair isle do not stretch aso well as ribbed... It has nothing to do with the fact that it is knitted in wool..
Good luck next time, or may be you could fit it to a kid size?

Actually I don't have any kids that size anymore, check out my other blog for my "offspring's" picture. I frogged it and will decide later what to do, meanwhile I'm finishing the red socks.
