So distraught was I, that I must have knitted like a fiend to repair this. Since in one day, it is reknitted and kitchenered and ready to go again. All's well that ends well. Still no clue as to what happened in the first place.
And here is a progress report on the Acorn Socks! And yes, all those seven stitches into one make perfect little three-dimensional acorns.
