Drat, drat, drat, drat, drat!

I am kicking myself.  It was a rookie mistake and I should have known better.

I was working away on the heel flap of the Watermelon Sock when something twigged.  All those stranded rows?  The ones I was so proud of?
Too.  Tight.

I had completely forgotten to adjust the size of the sock so that it would actually fit over the size of the foot for which it is intended.  Stranding takes away a lot of the horizontal stretch in the knitting.  Duh.
