What are you most proud of?
They fit! I followed all of Donna's advice on measuring my foot and calculating how many stitches I needed and it worked perfectly. I had made quite a few pairs of socks before this course but this is the first time I have got a pair that fit me properly.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
If possible try and have an even number of stitches. I had 63 and it was a pain splitting them for the heel flap and the toe decreases. The folded ribbon ribbing pattern is lovely but the repeat of 9 stitches is awkward.
