well what's wrong with a little destruction

Things not to do with a sock that came out so much better than expected:

1. Decide in a drunken state, "Hey, since I knit the heel and toe in a different color, wouldn't it be great to knit the top in the same different color as well?"
2. Decide in another drunken state, "Hey, I should implement that plan."
3. Decide in the same second drunken state to try to implement it while drunk.
4. Decide to try to implement it while in an unlit Metro station.
5. Decide, after having fucked it up, that it would be a great idea to cut the ribbed edge off, instead of unraveling it.
6. Cut the edge off, down almost to where the pickup needles are.
7. Decide this project is still salvegeable and try to fix it.

Not that I would know anything about this, mind you...

Anyone have any ideas on what to do with an unraveling sock, men's size 11, made in Cherry Tree Hill Supersock and Karabella Aurora 4?

My suggestion:

Step 1: Take the needles out. Cast on a new sock, preferably for yourself.

Step 2: Find a "time-out" corner for the offending size 11 sock. Tell it that it can stay there until it's attitude improves.

Step 3: Come back in 3-6 months, frog, start it over.
