Notes

These are the colours of the popsicles I craved as a child, and was never allowed.

So naturally, I need a pair of quirky ankle socks featuring them, right?

Started out with 64 stitches and medium heel. Only, that’s too wide and too short at the heel. So changing to smaller size and widest heel. As usual. Sighs.

Ripped out the additional arches on the instep. Not visible enough and uncomfortably tight.

41 rows decreases, 56 rows straight
