Notes

Half and half toe but with a kfb increase instead of my normal twisted yo (which can create a ridge I can feel on the side of my big toe). I’ll see how that works. 26/46/70.

Didn’t think through the size, just did the larger knowing 50-some stitches would likely be too small. Didn’t think of how large 70 would be. But some of my socks are a bit snug (since I prefer them that way) so I’m going to try something new and go with it.

The pattern is getting a bit lost in the yarn but it adds a great texture that I enjoy.

Heel 12/11/12. Simple stretchy BO.

These socks are super comfy. I was worried about the larger stitch count - normally I would have gone down a needle size - but I suppose all the purling gives it some elasticity as they don’t feel baggy like vanilla socks have with this many stitches.
