This made more of a tall slouchy sock than it did a knee-high sock.

Made from leftovers of yarn

64 cylinder Speedster
I loosened my cam nut one full revolution of the dial than my usual (lowered the v cam for a looser stitch) which is
dial on 3 (v cam 3 cm below top of cylinder).

22 rounds of 1x1 rib (selvedge 1 in 1 out)
after 22 round of 1x1 rib
reset counter to 0
change needles to 3x1 rib
20 rounds of 3x1 rib then left to tighten 1 click
10 rounds then 1 click tighter
10 rounds then 1 click tighter
10 rounds then 1 click tighter and I am back at my usual tension
Counter should be at 50
Then 62 more rounds of 3x1 rib for a total of 112 rounds of 3x1 rib and 134 rounds total including cuff.

switched to all cylinder stitches on the heel needles and knit 10 rounds of preheel

made a blind wrapped heel two needles deeper on each half

knit 63 rounds for foot, switched out the rest of the ribber needles to cylinder, knit 2 rounds pre toe then made a Sue-ecide toe for practice and to compare the look with the wrapped heel.

My leg turned out to be 16 ixnches when relaxed off the machine. When I put it on, from heel to top it measures 13.5 inches or about 15% less in length. So I figure I need to add 21 more rounds to about 155 in total for the leg to get a knee hi sick. The cuff is snug,
