Heart Sandal Socks

What was your source for this knitting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo HeartStrings #A36 Heart Socks Link to website or photo www.heartstringsfiberarts.com/a36.shtm What are you most proud of? The original instructions were to decrease the gussets to a 54 stitch foot, and that is what I also used in this sandal sock version. The sock was originally designed this way because the lace heart pattern expands quite a bit compared to plain stockinette. What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you are making this adaptation, be sure to cast on very loosely so that the distance between stitches is adequate for the up-and-down shaping along the fancy edge. For tips, read my article "Cast On for a Good Finish" at my website: http://www.heartstringsfiberarts.com/knitting-caston.shtm
