I’m almost finished turning the heel. I’ve tried them on, and so far they seem fine, although maybe a bit looser than intended. I don’t mind somewhat slouchy socks — I am an eighties girl, after all — so that’ll be okay.
I did the ribbing for only five inches, instead of the nine or so total the pattern suggests. I’m pretty sure I know how to do 1×1 ribbing, and I didn’t feel I needed the practice.:-P I do need to remember to keep track of my rows, because I hate trying to count them afterwards.
