Dear True Love Socks:
It's not you, it's me.
Our relationship got off to a rocky start. First, I did the toe with the wrong sized needles, and had to do it over. After I got started, things seemed to go smoothly.
I finally finished the heel and started the leg. I have been looking at you, thinking that you don't look like my foot. Since I bought this yarn to make socks for me, I thought they should look like my foot. So today, I tried you on.
So I think it is time we said good bye. I am going to frog you this afternoon (that sounds gentler than rip out). Perhaps, someday, I will alter the pattern, or make socks for someone with a foot your shape. But, for now, it is good bye. And really, it isn't you, it's me.
