I’m still amazed that I knit a pair of socks. They aren’t perfect — specifically, I didn’t pick up enough stitches when I turned the heel — but they look pretty good. I will definitely be knitting more socks in the future. I think I’ll probably even knit another pair of these for the test-along. I was noticing the small size of children’s feet this morning, boy I’m a sucker for a quick-knit.
Pattern: Socks 101 (women’s size medium)
Yarn: Manos del Uruguay Wool, in color 112 (Moss)
Yardage: less than one 138 yard skein
Needles: US size 10
Gauge: 4 st/inch
Modifications: I’m fairly certain I did not execute the heel exactly as written. Now that I’ve done a pair I think I’ll understand the instructions better next time. I knit 8″ before the toe decrease, next time I’ll do less and probably make the smaller size to fit my feet better.
