This is such a clever way of creating surface texture!

Progress Notes
7/11/11 Finished leg; waiting to BO ‘til I finish 2nd sock so I can maximize yardage.

6/12/11 Finished foot (11 lattice repeats before increasing) & short row heel. Handled the post-heel increases differently, as follows: instead of M1 @ each end 5x, I picked up 3 sts in gaps on each side between heel & instep. This yielded 36 sts in first round (due to starting out with 30 sole sts instead of 25). Then picked up an additional stitch on either side every other row 4 times + 1. Started leg lattice when st count reached 78 (37 instep sts, 41 ‘heel’ sts). This is a complicated way of saying I added 11 sts total. :)

6/9/11 I’m knitting the sole stitches tighter in hopes that will compensate for the difference in gauge between stockinette & the lattice pattern.

6/6/11 CO provisionally as per pattern, knit short row toe; increased to 61 sts after toe (30 sole, 31 instep) before starting lattice pattern.
