sock design - how far do you like to take the ankle ribbing?

Hi Everyone.

Since I still consider myself a beginner, I really welcome advice and ideas. I'm making my first sock. If it turns out ok, I'll knit the second and call them a pair. :)

fixing mistakes in lace?

Somewhere, in the last week, I read an article, with great pictures, of how someone dropped stitches and re-knitted row by row using coloured pins for each row.
Does that sound familiar to anyone?
Can't find the article.

Gauge Sanity Check

My niece has asked me to do her a sweater, and I have tons of Bolivian alpaca in my stash. The yarn was supposed to be for a different project, but my friend in La Paz got the wrong weight. Now I am left with 900g of 2-3 fingering/sport weight yarn. Pattern calls for a US 8 needle and a gauge of 17 sts & 22 rows = 4" x 4". My gauge swatch worked up to 3" x 3" with 2 yarns stranded.
