Notes

Got the yarn on sale at Stitches West in 2011 - will be knitting a friend some socks so I have a “take-along” project

Standard toe-up with Judy’s Magic Cast-On, then switched to 2x2 rib on instep. Hybrid heel with the gusset and heel flap, then 2x2 up the leg. Last couple of inches, I switched to 1x1 ribbing, then did Jenny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-Off, which works SO well!

3-3 - One big sock is done - hoping that I made the leg long enough!

3-17 - I used all of one skein, and about a yard of another - pretty perfectly matched in size, for a mens 10 1/2 size. I’m impressed at how
big a pair of socks 100 g can make!
