FO Sunday

Who knew! two posts in one weekend.

Anyway, finished my 'Monkey' socks for a KAL on Ravelry. Made of unknown Opal, I lost the band, and size US #3, #2 and #1's to get something that fits.
Here's the breakdown for top down:
  • 3's for the ribbing and the first repeat
  • 2's for the leg and the heel flap, and
  • 1's for the gusset/foot/toe.
I had originally made another pair in trekking according to the pattern, using 2's through out and couldn't get them on my feet let alone up my leg. The only thing that fit was the toe and it was too roomy. So I modified by changing size of needles and number of heel stitches and gusset pickups.
