2015/05/24 - Finished, so much fun! Sadly, I accidentally cut one of the ends before I wove it in. I ended up knotting it to keep it in place. I think that’ll be OK, I can’t feel the knot when I wear it. When I do this again, I should do it a bit shorter in the foot.

2015/05/05 - Finished the heel and gusset for the first sock. I had fun figuring out the math.

2015/05/03 - Ready to start the heel on the first sock.

2015/04/28 - Wound bacon yarn into a beautiful ball and cast on!
