I started this at knit night at Geeksboro. Important numbers so far:

CO 72
Cuff: 25 rounds (~2”)

Then it’s kinda deceptive because the first 2 rounds of the leg are exactly like the cuff.

Finished the leg. It is 17 repeats of the pattern. I wonder if I’ll run out of yarn before I run out of socks….

2016-01-02

Finished the first sock. Foot was 93 (visible, not counting round on the needles) rounds past the heel. Then a full round of white before beginning toe decrease.

Looks like there’s enough yarn left over for the 2nd sock.

2016-02-03

Time for a heel flap on the second sock!

This yarn + this pattern = perfect match. I love how the stitch pattern creates a popcorn-like texture. The difference between how the stitches work out in pattern vs. in stockinette is really neat to observe.

When I knit this again, I think I would like to do a contrasting cuff, and possibly in 1x1 instead of 2x2.
