Ladies and Gentlemen...it fits! The colorwork gave me so many problems. Some of my knitter friends suggested I just give up. But I refused to let the colorwork get the best of me! After I cut back and picked stitches back up I knit the colorwork, all 39 rows, with needles one size larger. The sock still would not go over my heel. I ripped it back again (at least I learned not to weave in ends until AFTER I had tried it on). So, I figured that meant I needed the next size up...which was a no-go because I didn't have the next size DPNs...so I went up two sizes instead.
Finally, I have a sock that fits...and I've even got the red and black heel finished! Can you see the bats?
