I’m not feeling any of the socks I have on the needles at the moment so I just had to cast this on.

Cuff: 15 rounds
Leg: 4 repeats before heel flap
Heel flap: 15 repeats

I like working with this yarn. That wasn’t the case at first, as I am not fond of working with fine yarn (takes too long to finish a project!). But as my project grew and my fingers got used to the feel of the yarn, I found it quite enjoyable to work with. The colourway is also subdued enough to let the pattern shine through.

27 Sept 2012: Feels like forever with this sock! I do enjoy the pattern, except when I get over-caffeinated and can’t figure out where I am in the chart! Finished the first sock this morning, just need to graft the toe and then start the second one.

29 Sept 2012: Started the second sock, knitted most of it while watching my boys swim. On to the heel flap now.

1 Jan 2013: Yay! First FO of 2013!
