Notes

Plain vanilla socks. My gauge has loosened and my last few pairs of socks are a bit baggy. So I’m going down to size 1 DPNs (previously used size 2’s), and casting on 68 rather than 64. Hopefully this will be snug but not too tight. I’m also doing 2x2 ribbing, though I usually do 1x1.

Changes worked perfectly! We’ll see if this prevents saggy socks. :) Mods: CO 68 on size 1 needles. Do heel as usual (extra 4 stitches are on front needle, not heel or gusset needles). At toe, decrease until 7 st., 14 st., 7 st. on needles, then Kitchener stitch.
