In the original pattern the eighth stitch purl dip was a knit stitch. As is my habit, I turned it into a purl stitch so the socks have a wide ribbing and snugger fit.
Also, I used 56 stitches instead of 64 to better fit my narrow feet.
I felt like something easy this weekend, so finished these socks. I think they're the brightest socks I've ever knit. I like them.
If only I wore yellow. There isn't a single yellow garment in my closet except these socks. Are socks considered garments?
