We have a problem!"

Ummm something dreadful has happened with my sock.
Which is sad because the actual foot part fits really, really well.
It is super comfy.

But the cuff - is looooooooose. And there is a big lump at the back. And it is at the wrong part of my leg. Total bummer.

I decreased way too fast. When I re-read the pattern I see that I was supposed to have rows in between that I somehow did not notice - rows that would have added about 3 " of leg to the socks.

I was going to ask for advice but on looking at the pictures I think. Scrap. It is time to frog the poor thing.

Well. Not tonight but perhaps tomorrow morning.

The title is a qoute from my favourite old-timey cartoon days. I say it whenever something is going wrong! Do you remember that one?

Update: Haven't slept keep thinking about this problem. Have any of you ever ripped from the other end of an item and then re-knit? I am thinking of finishing this then tearing back the top and re-knitting - it might be easier than starting over...then again it might not work. It seems like it will...
