Notes

This pattern looks interesting. Had to try it.

May 12th:Started left sock.
May 16th:I had to rip my first attemp to heel because I couldn’t get sock in my foot.
May 20th:I finished first sock and started second.
May 28th:I finished second sock.

Modifications:
My stripes are 10 rounds long.
In heel shaping I first repeated rounds 1-2 twice and then knitted rounds 3-4. I continue that until I had 15 sts remain between heel marker and end of round. Heel joining round I had 38 sts after new COR for back leg. Decerase minigusset rounds I started with rounds 3-4 and then repeated rounds 1-4 until I had 38 sts before COR. Then I knitted couple of stripes so that every other round I decreased at the beginning and end of the round and increased 2 sts in the middle like in mid toe part. So I get longer leg.

At the end these socks are too small for me. They took 40 g white yarn and 48 g violet yarn.
