Modifications/comments:

  • Sock Knitters Anonymous June 2012 Challenge: Designer Anne Campbell (skajun12)
  • Long Tail Cast on over 2 needles
  • 2/2 rib in cuff
  • about 7” leg height
  • I love this yarn more than words can express. It’s a party in merino-form. Also, there are gold sparkles.
  • Reverse stocking stitch gusset (one of the options in the pattern)
  • It was the first time I’d come across this style of heel and I really like it. It fits me well and I like how you knit in the round all the way, apart from the heel turn on the sole.

  1. The socks are great and an interesting heel. So nice to find “your” heel…

    I hope you’re feeling a bit better!
