No Curlicue to see here, move right along!
Oh, I know. It's a winner.
I think it's the yarn. The light-colored yarn really makes every single stitch visible, every slant and eyelet immediately obvious, and the whole thing, simply fabulous.
The sportweight yarn makes the few seconds I've had to knit very satisfying, since I've been able to accomplish inches of knitting in just a few minutes.
I'm questioning the length of the leg - I may have made it too high. My legs are shaped just like Grandma's: fairly small ankles and lower leg, and then very sizeable calves. I aim to make the leg of the sock stop just short of the calf, and in this case I may have knit 1/2 a repeat too long. Plus I'm slightly concerned about the amount of yarn I have, so the 1/2 a repeat may make a difference in the long run. Should I frog now, take out that little bit, and reknit the heel? We aren't talking much work, that's for sure.
Oh, who am I kidding? You know I'm going to do it.
