Notes

Beautiful looking socks!

I knit the S (68 st) version and it fits nicely.

I modified the colourwork section colours by using the main sock colour through all of the sections.

The cable work took a lot of effort on small needles, cable work every round, and splitty yarn, but it was well worth it.

I knit these on DPNs and if I knit them again I would move the beginning of the round to the back of the leg/under the foot so that the colourwork jog is less noticeable.

Final weight of socks: 79 grams.

I cast on this project to use up yarn from my stash and practice my colourwork.
