What do you do when you’ve knit a pair of socks using the Princess Foot (reverse stockinette) on the sole and the toes, and all of your instruction books have instructions for Kitchener Stitch in stockinette stitch?
Well, first I Googled, but I should know better than to try that before I’ve had enough coffee. I couldn’t frame the query right and didn’t find what I was looking for. So, what the heck. If all the instructions I have are for stockinette, I figured I’d just turn the socks inside out.
Here’s what the toes looked like when I started:

Note to self: I need to find a smaller darning needle before I knit any socks on the 000’s I have.
Then I put the stitches back on the needles:
Grafted the toes:
And tried the socks on:
Then I remembered to turn them right side out!
I did a big ole victory lap around the house, singing, “They fit, they fit, they fit, they fit!” Sorry, no pictures of that, my hubby’s out of town!
