Notes

Converted to toe-up.
CO 8 using Judy’s magic cast on. Increase to 64sts. Knit pattern using longer foot pattern.
Used standard short row heel.
Knit leg pattern with longer leg addition.
Used turned cuff similar to that of the original version (using grey, knit 1 row, purl 1 row, knit 5 rows, switch to ivory purl one row to fold cuff down, knit 5 rows, bind off using Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off, leave long tail to sew flap down).

I had knit to about halfway through the leg and tried it on only to find out it wouldn’t fit. I’ve decided to frog the sock and start over. I’m now knitting it from the toe up so I can try on as I go. I also went up another needle size and am working it on a #2 the second time around.

Finished sock #1 and it fits!
