Notes

Could not resist casting on another sock for the LotsofSocksKAL. I’m doing 4 different sock patterns, just one sock of each, in addition to the 3 pair I have completed. I will probably cast on another if I have empty needles before the deadline!

Grumpkin is a combination of gray and pumpkin orange… or what I turn into when I stay up too late knitting socks!

Finished the second sock last night and am wearing them now. The Fleegle heel is very similar to the Wendy Knits toe-up gusset sock heel I usually do, but I never thought to do it in a contrast color. Also it uses K2tog and ssp instead of ssk and p2tog, and you don’t slip the first stitch after each turn. I’m curious what would happen if I reverted to my more familiar patterns but did it in a contrast color next time.
