Fancy Frogging

I've tried to post a few times and have had a problem with my pictures working. But it seems to be ok now. We'll see.
I definitely seem to have the winter blahs again this year so I'm fighting it with bright knitting.
Although as you can see, there's been some frogging too. Poor little Skew sock was too tight. I've only knit the pattern as written but I tend to be a tight knitter so I have to consciously knit more loosely or they don't fit. I wasn't. I decided that most of the pattern would lend itself *fairly* easily to an increase of stitches so I'm knitting it with 80 stitches around instead of 72 now. I'll let you know if it helps.
It sure looks fancy all piled up with curly yarn though doesn't it? Very pretty. Almost made up for the fact that it needed to be frogged. Almost.
In the meantime, I will try to soak up the sunshine and reasonable weather when I can, and make it through the winter once more. The days are already getting longer so we are on the way.
