Well, that's thinking outside the box.  It looks great.

Everything about this sweater is great.  Such a pretty pattern, the color and yarn are fantastic, and those buttons are perfect for it.  Great job!  If I was the mom, my baby would wear it as often as possible.

I think that knitting shrinks more width-wise than length wise, so if you were able to shrink them enough to be short enough, they might be too narrow.  If you used superwash wool, which a lot of sock yarn is made of, you won't be able to shrink them at all.

Did you knit them cuff down or toe up?  If you did cuff down, you could undo the toe and frog back a few inches to the base of your toes and reknit the toe. 

If they are toe up, I'm not sure what to do, short of frogging and starting over.  The only thing I can think of is to steek the toe off, pick the stitches up and reknit the toe.  I don't know if that would leave an uncomfortable seam though.  Maybe try it on a swatch before cutting up your socks. 

Good luck and let us know if you have any luck.

You've got a great boss!  That's such a pretty cardigan and such a pretty yarn.

Once again, something you knit is really fantastic.  These are great!

Those are so pretty and I love the colors in that yarn.  Too bad it's discontinued.

Nice cowl.  You look great at 2am.  Me at 2am (if I could stay awake that long) would be bags under my eyes and frizzy hair.

These are very pretty.  I like your yarn and that you chose a pattern doesn't compete with it.
