Notes

Teri’s first sock KAL! I traded her some Tosh for the Knitologie yarn ages ago. Not really my colors, but I love the way it’s knitting up, and the gold Hawthorne really brings out the speckles.

I cast on 56 stitches and worked 15 rounds 2x2 rib.

April 15, 2018

The leg is 8 1/2” long and now I’m thinking the fabric is too loose, so I’m going to change to a 2.5 mm needle for the foot.

July 22, 2018

I worked about 7” more on the 2.5 mm needles, then worked the toes, decreasing down to 20 stitches. The toes measure 1 3/4”, so I’m cutting in the heels at 6 3/4”.
