Needles & yarn
US 0 - 2.0 mm
Hand Dyed Knit Picks Bare
1 skein = 440.0 yards (402.3 meters), 100 grams
Jamaica Cherry

Knit Picks Color-Your-Own, hand-dyed with Jamaica and Black Cherry Kool-Aid, with highlights of Cherry Kool-Aid and a different brand of drink mix in Peach.

These socks were started on the Veendam, a ship of the Holland America line, while on the Baltic sea.

I overthought the pattern, I think, and added one 12-stitch repeat to the leg of the sock to fit my large calves. However, when I got to the heel flap I had far too many stitches and the sock was way too big. I plan to rip the sock out and start anew, using the number of repeats called for in the pattern, but this time I’ll use a larger needle to start with, and then switch to smaller needles as I get to the ankle.

10/20/07: Knit the leg on US 2 and switched to US1 for the foot. Would have been better to do the leg on US1.5, which I don’t currently own. Will frog (again!) and reknit (again!) once I have the correct size needles.
