Notes

Yay for socks! My first socks that I will actually be able to wear with shoes!

42sts per needle, 84sts total (yes, I have very wide feet all of you 60st people).

21/12/09 - Haha, would you believe it? I’m getting most of the foot done during the down time while working on the basement.

23/12/09 - Finished the heel in between girders today!

27/12/09 - Finished the first sock! I decided to go with a 6” leg from the heel, then an inch of 2x2 rib and BO with Jeny’s.

28/12/09 - Finished the toe of the second sock - started yesterday - and the foot. Started on the heel (barely).

30/12/09 - So, I washed the first sock today (because I happened to be doing laundry), and the yarn washed marvelously! It’s back to it’s wonderfully soft self that it was when it came out of the box; it just needed to get all that basement gunk out of it.

2/1/10 - Finished the second sock! Pics will come once I wash the second.
