Notes

Both socks knitted at once on two Addi Turbo circular needles. Gauge: 9 stitches per inch.

Construction notes: Used Judy's Magic Cast-on and Jeny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-off. Added two stitches to sock leg front in the last stockinette row to bring the total to 72 stitches so that I could finish with 2x2 ribbing.

Did my usual trick to eliminate holes when completing this type of heel … see the notes on the project page of my Temptation Top-Down Socks 1 for how-to details.

Third photo (the one with sock still in progress) is the most colour-true.
