Notes

Socks are finally finished! Wooo! I realized that as much as this is a pretty pattern, it is wont to fall down a bit because of the pattern. I don’t block my socks because I want them tight on my feet. But this pattern naturally wants to scrunch down on itself and it makes the sock scrunch. Still, it is really pretty.

Sept 13 - Twisted ribbing is done and I’m started on the first repeat. Now that the ribbing is done (which I am admittedly slower at), the pattern will zing along.

Sept 11 - Remember when I said the sock looked too big? I was wrong. Way wrong. I never fail to underestimate the hugeness of my feet. :o/ Frogged, started over.

Sept 7 - I’m trucking along any time I get time to sit down and knit on these. Super easy pattern.

Sept 3 - I cast on and thought it looked too big after a few rows so I ripped it out and cast on the smaller size.
