Crying Over a Kint Sock

I’ve been knitting some socks for about a year.  Its only the second pair of socks I’ve knit and I’ve had to frog more than a few times.  I finished the first sock on my honeymoon in July.  Last week, in an attempt to finish some of the Million and One Projects I’ve got on my list, I picked up the second sock once again.  I’m past half done.  I’ve turned the heel, made the gusset, and am knitting for length of the foot before decreasing for the toe.  Satisfaction.


I took my knitting bag to a house with a young dog.  Said dog snuck into my knitting bag during dinner and took my finished sock.  No one saw him with the sock until the next day.  I didn’t even realize it was missing.  I am told it has a hole in it.  I haven’t seen it, but my mind goes to the worst.  Even if its a small hole, the taking apart of a finished sock and re-knitting it once again is a bit soul crushing.  I can’t even work on the sock still in my bag because I want the other sock as a length comparison so they are the same size.

Of course, if its really, really bad, I’d have to order more yarn online.  The store I bought the gorgeous, expensive yarn at is closed now.

I do not want to just set this project aside again!  I want to be done with it.  Depending on the damage, should I just frog it and use the yarn for something else?  Should I suck it up and fix the holey sock if I can?  What would you do?

This dog is not the dog that took my socks.  It is someone else’s dog.

    Boo! That stinks. I’d probably give up and start a new project, honestly, it can be so wretched to feel like you have to practically start over on something you’ve been spending so much time on. However, I don’t know how to knit so I’m not sure if that’s how it works or not. But it sounds like you can’t really afford any more mistakes over this project because the materials aren’t available where you once acquired them.

    Scrap it, n’ move on. That’s my 2 cents. 🙂
