A Bit of Frogging

So, I started on my Ravelympics socks because I was getting tired of the stockinette body of the sweater. I worked it up through the heel, took it to Knit Night, the fount of Knitterly Wisdom, and the consensus was that the sock was too small for the 7-14 age range. Seriously folks, the size charts for childrens’ socks tell you oh-so-helpfully that a shoe size of this translates to a sock measurement of that. But for those of us without specific children? None of the major charts I found were helpful in letting me know a size range for ages.

So, I frogged back to the toe, added more stitches, and I think it’ll fit a kid with a slightly smaller foot than my Ladies’ size 6. One sock done, started a bit of the toe on the next.

But now back to the cardigan. I’ve wondering how to finish this — I think I’m doing navy seed stitch at the bottom and for the bands. We’ll see now much navy is left for the neck and cuffs, but I’ve got more grey, green and yellow, so I’ll have options. In addition, since we are halfway through the Ravelympics, the feline judging has started, and I think she’s gonna be tough as those gymnastics judges:

She says that I need to add a bit more length, and to stick the edging!
