I am happy to say I finished my socks yesterday. For some reason once I get the second heel done I have to finish the socks ASAP. It’s just another kooky quirk in my brain.
This is the pattern I keep in my head: 64 sts, 1/2 inches of 2X2 ribbing, a 7 inch leg (including ribbing), heel flap on half the stitches and a fairly wide toe box for my small wide feet. The yarn is Knit Picks Felici in Beyond The Wall. I love this yarn. It’s softer than you’d expect and the stripes are fun to knit and wear. The price is really good too.
This is my first finish of 2018. I’ve already picked out yarn for my next pair of socks. I suspect 2018 is going to involve a lot of socks. More about the next pair on another day!
