Notes

4/3/11: Felicia gave me the blank yesterday and I had to dye it immediately. I dyed it with food coloring and Kool-Aid.

4/6/11: Cast on 6 and increase to 68.

4/9/11: Finished first foot. 7”.
Started second sock.

4/13/11: Finished first heel flap. A touch over 2” long.

4/15/11: Finished second heel flap.

4/16/11: Turned both heels.

4/22/11: Finished first gusset decrease and heel flap. Started 6x2 pattern on leg.

5/1/11: Finished the first leg pattern: 6” of 6x2 ribbing.

I started the decreases on the second sock and was zipping along when the damn needle broke. I’m putting the sock away until I calm down.

5/13/11: Finished the first leg (6”) and started 2x2 ribbing. The ribbing went off the rails, but I’m not ripping it. I’m going to leave it and knit on.

6/13/11: Sick day from work allowed me to finish the socks.
