Notes

Getting this project page started to get in at the wire for SKA Apr 2012! This is going to be a Socks of DOOM project!


Almost 3hours on the plane going and coming from Tampa and Newark finished the leg and got me halfway down the heel.
I hate the instructions for the short row heel that I had to execute, but since I couldn’t execute a heel flap (the cast on ended up being tight, so when I tried the sock on I realized that I couldn’t get it up my leg/calf and had to stop after 7 repeats), I had to go with it. Finding out that I was supposed to repeat that for the toe was insane; I executed a standard wide toe (from Folk Socks) and grafted to finish sock 1.
