Notes

Knit from the top down. CO with Jeni’s surprisingly stretchy cast-on and knitting following directions. This is a simple and quick knit. The heel is already done (picked up 21 sts on 17/34 rows first sock) and I am working the decreases as instructed: decrease round, 1 knit round, decrease round, 2 knit rounds, decrease round, 3 knit rounds etc.

Next time the sock can be a little tighter though: smaller needles and/or thinner yarn for this stitch amount. Or with this yarn, less stitches.

12.6. On 11.6. I was already doing the toe decreases when I realized that the sock is WAY too big (about size 45 or something) so on 12.6. I frogged back to the heel flap and decreased from 15 to 13 stitches on the two “aiting” needles. The sticthes that I picked up I decreased to 17 so on the heel-flap needles there are 21 stitches (17+8/2) to slowly decrease to 15 or 13.

13.6. After a lot of customization regarding size, the first sock now fits like … A perfect sock! :)

8.8. The second sock is also finished now and I’m crocheting the frills. The eben-wood needles have felt great and I like how the socks turned out. I’m sure I’ll wear them a lot.
