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!
