My first pair of handknitted "real" socks are undone.

I've been enjoying wearing my small collection of handknitted socks in this cold weather, but not every pair is a success. The first pair is now back to being a skein of yarn. The second time I wore them I broke the cast on edge. Knitting a nice elastic top edge is one of those basic skills in sock knitting and I guess I didn't get it right the first time. I want to experiment with some different approaches to sock knitting in particular a toe-up approach, so I decided to redeem the yarn rather than trying to patch it up.
