Pattern calls for using 2 circs. Using DPNs instead. Toe up cast ons with DPNs are extra-fiddly.

Pattern also calls for using size 1 1/2 US needles. I need size 2 to achieve gauge.

Per Webs, this yarn’s total weight for the full put-up is 108 grams. That means it’s 81 grams for the 300 yard skein and 27 grams for the 100 yard skein. When I was finished, I had 18 grams and 8 grams left, respectively.

Semi-solid green used for toe, heel, and ribbed cuff.

Using variegated, knitted four pattern repeats after completing toe before beginning short-row heel. From tip of toe to beginning of short-row heel, approx 7 inches. (I have a small foot.) After completing short row heel, knitted another six repeats up the leg before beginning ribbed cuff. Ribbed 1x1 cuff is 12 rows, approx 3 cm. Total foot length, measured tip of toe to back of heel, approx 9 inches. Total leg height measured bottom of heel to top of cuff, approx 11 inches.
