August 2012 updates include:

  1. Added Cephalopod Skinny Bugga as one of the recommended yarns.

  2. Added left and right hand charts for a 68 stitch medium/large to the original 64 stitch small/medium. Updated pattern directions accordingly.

  3. Revised the thumb gusset chart to produce an increase on all gusset rows.

  4. Corrected an error in the right hand row reference for the Thumb Gusset directions.

  5. Added charts to facilitate the knitting of coordinating Stinky Socks (thanks to Bertandfelix for the nudge). This is in NO way a sock pattern. But, if you have a favorite vanilla sock pattern you could easily use it & the charts to create Stinky Socks. There are four border charts each with an 8 stitch repeat. There are four leg charts, two using 64 stitches & two using 72 stitches.
