I just got almost all the way through (1/2 way through the gusset decreases) the Crusoe socks from Knitty.com and decided to try them on. Ok. I know I have wide feet, but they were too tight. Waaaaaaaaaay too tight. I used Fleece Artist Merino and I was even getting a larger gauge, and they were TOO TIGHT!!! Had to frog the whole thing.
Now. Do I feel like starting again and adapting them to the "right" size? Never mind that I had to mentally correct the heel turning instructions, its beautiful yarn and I like the pattern....grrrrrr.
