I finished the second sock while watching the Clinton/Trump debate last night.
I re-knit the toe of the first one to make a longer sock.
this pattern again. It was easy to internalize and was perfect for the many hours I sat on planes and in a bus while I was in Iceland last week. Solid or tonal yarns would set the pattern off beautifully. I used 2.5mm needles and cast on 72 sts for the leg. After turning the heel, I decreased to 70 sts for the foot as I hadn't taken a 2.25mm needle on the trip. I usually go down a needle size to make the foot a big snugger. It reduces shifting of the sock on the foot in the shoe, hence wears better.
