Notes

I’m doing these toe-up.

80 stitch count. I worked 2 at a time on 2 circs up until the heel. I used reinforcing yarn for the heels (check the MUMTU sock formula for details) and eye of partridge stitch. Then I worked each sock separately because there are 2 rounds where the twisted stitches cross over between the needles. I managed these bits with locking stitch markers. It took a long time - kind of lost my sock mojo after 3 months working on them.

They fit Steve’s large feet -- a little snug, so I’m really hoping they do NOT shrink.

Edited to add.. they shrank. Moving this to an ugh.
