Naturally Caron Spa (Color: "Naturally"); one US2 Harmony circular needle.
What was your inspiration?
I love the Craftsy video classes, have knitted socks forever and wanted to play with something new. Donna's instructions are clear and she adds lots of tips along the way.
What are you most proud of?
The finished sock, of course! And understanding different ways to make the adjustment needed for calf-high socks.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I love Judy's Magic Cast On for toe-up socks, and find it solves the problem of the cast on row looking a little loose. It seems hard to learn, but once you get the rhythm of it ("hand memory"), you can cast on faster than long-tail. I also make all my socks with one circ--I'm way too good at losing needles, so this helps!
