Thanks for the suggestions, knitter friends. I frogged it and started over again on size 1 needles. I've never used size 1s before. They are so teeny! I decided to do this after going to the yarn website and reading their commentary that the yarn is a bit thicker than usual sock yarn, after which they recommend 1s or 2s.
I thought I was well on my way to having these socks ready to wear for the Battlestar Galactica finale a week from tomorrow, but it's going to be hard to do it now. Wish me luck! I'll keep you posted.
