Thank you to all who answered my question & re-enforced my thought of frogging the sock & starting over with less stitches.
Jan-I used a size 2 needle & then used the number of stitches suggested for the gauge in the Sensation Socks book. This one fell between 48 or 64 & I went with the larger number but wish I would have done the smaller.
Squeeg-I love the suggestion of just knitting the new stitches from the old sock & not frogging & having to wind up the yarn.
Abby123 - This Trekking yarn is a superwash so I also had the thought that maybe it would shrink a little in the wash like some other superwash yarns I have used. No such luck, came out still huge and not even the sewing elastic that I have used on the cuff of other socks that slip will work for this.
So now if the weather doesn’t get us here in Atlanta tomorrow we are off to S. GA to see our DD play in her first college softball games & I have 4 hrs to work on the socks again. Thanks again to all who gave me their help on this problem.
