Knitting makes me happy, computers keep me humble.

Lovely soft yarn to work with if you like variegated yarns...I did like the way the heel stitch on the heel flap and sole turned out. The sock is a good example of how using a slip stitch pattern can improve the way a variegated yarn appears...the slipped parts look more like the way the yarn looks in a ball.

US size One needles...probably 72 stitches for my size 8 ladies foot. Worked ankle down...continued heel stitch (K1, P1 and knit alternate rows) while doing gussets. After finishing gussets, did heel stitch on all bottom stitches until I started the toes which I worked plain...after redoing them ten times (well, it seemed like ten) on a trip to Meteor Crater last week. After finishing the toe, I returned to my provisional cast-on at the ankle and worked UP as high as I wanted...still have two of the balls pictured above left over :-)

And I ALWAYS make both socks at the same time...doing a section on one and then the same section on the other one...with five needles :-)
