Sock Surgery

Warning: This post is not suitable for the squeamish, it may contain graphic images.

One Crusoe grew quite a bit larger than the mate so plastic surgery was scheduled for mid-afternoon Saturday February 11th.










The initial incision was made the excess was removed and the toe was re-sculpted in order to achieve perfection.










A special scar reducing stitch was used to close the incision.










The patient was reunited with its mate and posed briefly for a photograph before heading for the recovery room.










Pattern: Crusoe by Marylin A Roberts on Knitty.com
Yarn: Koigu KPPPM Color # ? (lost the tag) 2 skeins
Started: ? (pre-blog days)
Finished: February 11, 2006
Needles: Size 2 birch DPN's
Adjustments: I cast-on 56 sts and I knit the foot to 7 1/2 inches in length.

In order to avoid sock surgery, do not knit pairs of socks with a year and a half in between. And take good notes.

It appears that the patient is recovering nicely and no follow-up will be needed.

Nice job, Doctor.
