Sock Disaster

I'm obviously an idiot. I've been working on those toe-up socks for some time, and knew they were too big, but kept going, apparently on the assumption that I was going to turn into a Hobbit and grow giant feet to fit these socks. The fantastically high stitch count should have been a tip off, but I just kept knitting on. Now I have to rip them out. I think I'm going to cry. They were really looking good.

I know exactly how you feel - I did this recently, and just kept on knitting despite that voice of sanity in my head that said, 'Are you knitting these for a giant?' Instead of ripping them back, I turned the foot of the sock into a baby hat! At least it was not wasted.
