That's what I get for following instructions

This morning I woke up and started knitting. I carefully measured the sock in progress against finished socks, and on my feet, and determined that I was exactly 2.5 inches away from the end of the foot, and that it was time, according to the instructions, to start the toe decreases. I had a leisurely morning of knitting, shaping the toe, and paused, ready to kitchener, to try it on. TOO SMALL. The toe measures exactly 2 inches from the point I started decreasing, and my toes have to curl up miserably to fit into the sock.

SIGH. Time to rip out, do one more colour repeat, and decrease again. I was so mentally DONE with this sock, too.
