I had knit a pair of socks using size 1 needles for the first time. The socks were too short, even though I had added rows to my usual recipe.
SO, do I rip them out and start over using size 2 needles? Do I find a short-footed person to give them to?
Nope. I decided to pull out the dental floss, thread it through stitches just below the beginning of the toe decreases, frog the toe, and then knit up from the dental floss stitches.

Now off to soak and block.
