Notes

Doing them toe-up:
Use Wendy’s slip-stitch heel, size M, leaving out one stitch on either side of needle 2 to get the correct stitch number.

CO 13 sts each needle using JMCO, increase to 35 sts each needle. Then, turn foot chart up-side-down, and start at row 20 (the way these rows are numbered makes now sense, but whatever). Will update with further progress.

30/8/10 - Started for “swatch” portion. I really don’t get why everyone is complaining that this pattern is so fiddly; they’ve obviously never done a pair of complex cabled socks.

25/10/10 - Picked these up again. Have to finish them before Monday. It’s going to intense.

26/10/10 - Started the gusset, then realized I messed up, ripped back, then realized I messed up again, but in a more minor way, said “Heck with it!” and proceeded to knit.

3/12/10 - Finished sock #1. Almost done with the toe on sock #2.

27/12/10 - Powered through and got the heel done yesterday, and 3” of the leg today. Should finish tomorrow, if not distracted by more spinning.

28/12/10 - DONE!
