Yeah, you probably guessed it. I ripped out the Whitbys. I had the leg done and there was no way they were going over my heel. The good news is, I modified the pattern by adding an extra 8 stitches and I think they will be fine now. I only have a couple of inches done so far, but they look much better.
I'll probably never get these done in time for the new Feb sock in the Knitting on the Road KAL, but I love them anyway.
Sorry for the rant yesterday. I really am a nice person....really.
