Beach Bday Socks

Started for knitting on my Bday extravaganza, which took us to the beach this year. They look like birthday cupcake colors! Knit during the drive AND on the beach with my toes in the sand.

Did my standard toe, Judy’s magic cast on with 12 stitches; 2 at a time on 2 circs on my Chaiagoo needles. Using the pattern mainly for the SKYP stitch, adapted for my stitch count of 37 on instep, 38 on sole. Increased the edge stitches in rib for an interesting side of the foot. It’s also a 6/3 rib instead of 6/2 to get the count I wanted.

5/26: started gusset heel, intending to do reverse stockinette on the gusset increases to go along with the interesting foot-edge I’ve got going. went a little too far on the foot before I realized and then ripped back 1/2” so I could make the more appropriate sized heel flap! my last pair is a little too short in the heel flap area and I think this will fit better.

I love this yarn!
