Notes

worsted socks knit-up so fast!

to figure out how I wanted my colors to look I messed around in excel till I got it just right.

I knit each sock in one evening… but that is with straight through knitting - it can be nice to have the whole apartment to yourself :D.

I wish I had made the the ribbing around the foot smaller than the rest of the sock (maybe 4 sts), but I have thin feet so you might not have that same problem.

My advice for crocheting around the heel- don’t crochet into every stitch or it will turn out large and messy. i skipped about every third stitch and sometimes every other.

These stirrup (or yoga socks) turned out quite nicely. I am very happy with the colors. They will most likely be worn with regular socks in ballet flats, but I have also been wearing them around as slippers a bit.
