Grr, socks don't fit

DS really wanted me to make him some socks. I got one done in this pattern: http://www.rosemarywaits.com/2006/09/06/pattern-cabled-toddler-socks and its adorable, but it doesn't fit his huge foot.

Now I'm torn about whether I should make the second sock in the same size and give them away or frog it and start over.

Knitting seems great as long as one understands that one has to learn many lessons along the way

I second that! What did you decide to do? I hate frogging anything, especially socks, so if it were me I'd just make another one the same size and give them away.

I put it away and I've working on a scarf instead. I'm still undecided on what to do.

I frogged the sock, the kitchener stitch at the toe looked terrible anyway. I'm trying again with an extra 8 stitches. If they don't fit again then I'm giving them away.

I must be crazy to be making hand wash only socks for a 3 year old anyway.
