Notes

I started these during a road trip with hubby.
I am using the pattern mainly for the Fleegle heel construction.
Right away I realized that I had left behind the re-enforcing yarn I like to use for the toes and heel; also I used Judy’s magic cast-on but it came out not as neat and tight as I like it (at least on one sock).

Still I muddled along thinking it will be OK in the end (I can always darn them…) and it really doesn’t look so bad. I am knitting in stockinette stitch and k1, p1 ribbing for most of the cuff.

Cast off using Elizabeth Zimmerman’s sewn bind off for extra stretchiness.
