So, I was wandering through the blog stats and saw a hit from a Ravelry discussion. Jumped over to that and found someone whining that I didn't provide a pattern for the long spiral socks. Grrr.
I will not reply on Ravelry, because it's not worth the spit on the screen. But for the record: I never, ever put that blog page on Ravelry. Others have posted much of my stuff up there without my consent, and I joined Ravelry in self-defense and corrected photos. The original socks went up on my blog as a show-n-tell with a chart and gauge (or in other words, DO THE MATH, IDIOTS!)
(My heartfelt thanks to the people in the discussion who pointed this out, but arghh, I was in a good mood before this ...)
