Grace Knits a LOT!

Knitting mostly but other crafts, too (crochet, cross-stitch, scrapbooking) and life in general.

To rip or not to rip

I finished my Monkey sock (I started yesterday and finished this morning--I LOVED knitting this sock) but STR lightweight w/#2 needles proved to make a bigger sock than I wanted. A part of me doesn't want to waste the time that I took to knit this sock but it really is TOO BIG and would really bug me. Do I go down to a #1 or 1.5 needle? Do I just choose a different pattern for the STR and a new yarn for my Monkeys (for I MUST own a pair)? I will probably rip it and try on smaller needles but the time it took! Boo hoo!

The colors are beautiful, no (colorway farmhouse)?

Love STR and Monkey!

For what it is worth, I would go with a more solid or heathered yarn for the Monkey because the detail is so pretty. I love that sock yarn, though. Re-do it cause it will always bug you and you may not wear them as often because of it. You'll always have the photo, though.
