I’m sure you’ve heard of the Hans Christian Anderson story The Princess and the Pea. A short recap of the story is that a bedraggled young woman must prove her royal heritage. She sleeps on top of twenty mattresses but has such a fitful night as she can feel a pea through the pile. Thus she must be royalty.
After (almost) finishing the textured socks, I discovered a purl bump right in the middle of the sole. I’m sure we can all relate to a pebble, no matter how small, in our shoe. And how irritating that can be when we walk.
Good thing I caught it before I finished the Kitchener stitch. I can just run that stitch down to the offending stitch and use a crochet hook to “knit” back up to the toe edge.
