Thought anyone following the progress might enjoy these two “design features”.

The first is from sock #1—I forgot that 2x2 rib required a multiple of four stitches and cast on 58. As I got to the end of my first round I realized my mistake, but I hate having to re-cast on, so I faked two stitches, which left that weird unattached bit. I’ll seam it up with the cast on tail, no biggie.

The second picture is the heel flap from sock #2. For some reason, when I picked up only 14 stitches on one side and 15 on the other, I must have just been like “oh, oh well”. I faked by doing a k3tog instead of a k2tog on the first decrease row on the side with the correct number of stitches to even everything out.

First pair of socks that will be mine!
