Notes

Needles: Knitter’s Pride Cubics rosewood dpns
Swatch: small sock used for gauge was inaccurate (tension over smaller circumference much tighter)
CO: long tail, 48 sts

Plan:
Try 3x1 rib for ankle
Before grafting toes, remember to re-seat stitches

14 June update: now knitting sock #3. First sock is perfect size, but the cast-on for the ankle is a bit loose. Second sock uses gray yarn for heel and toe and is too short (that’s an easy fix, though). Third sock also uses gray yarn for heel and toe, and the intended wearer is available for fitting, so I’m going to finish sock #3 at the just-right size and use it as a guide when I rip out the toe of sock #2 and add more length.
