Sock surgery

Working on my sock while babysitting probably wasn't the wisest choice. I managed to get some of my garter ribbing skewed. I noticed it about 4 rows up. I was able to use a crochet hook to drop stitches and bring them back up. Discovered three things:

  1. The idea is simple.
  2. Doing this with stockinette stitch is a piece of cake.
  3. The extra hand motions required to do this for garter stitch made me want to frog back, even though it would have taken longer to fix it that way.

But, sock surgery was successful and I'm back on my merry way. Four more rows before the heel.
