I 💗 Fall

 I couldn't wait to cast on for the new KAL and did great from the starting line...
 but stumbled on the first turn!   I remember from a year ago when I tried to knit the pattern Nutkin, I just don't like it!  Then the sock had too many stitches and it didn't fit right so I ripped again.
 Then I dug through my extensive pattern collection and found a good fit!
Ah, yes, I have found a good fit and a pattern to make me smile;  an old one called Red Dwarf Sock.  A few minor tweaks to make it fit my stitch count and  we're off!
