Third Time's the Charm

I think I should have called these ones my Goldilocks socks.  When I started them, I made the circumference larger than I should have, and they ended up too loose around my foot.  I ripped them back to the toe, and redid the foot with a smaller circumference, this time using the circumference I would usually use at this gauge for a stockingette sock.  I got past the heel, that time, before I finally faced facts that the design pulled the stitches in tighter than stockingette would, and acknowledged that they were too tight.  Heaving a big sigh, I ripped back to the toe again and chose a number between the two.  This time they are juuuuust right.

And so pretty!
