The pattern said repeat the decrease rounds to 12 stitches. 12 stitches total, not 12 on each needle! I bound off and weaved in anyway.
These socks are starting to remind me of the Pareto Law. The last 10% of them is taking up 90% of the efforts. I guess you could say I got finish line fever - in a bad way. I was just thinking "Ohmygosh, I'm done! I'm so close to being done!" I didn't actually read the pattern.
So I'm hitting myself, and getting out my scissors again.
