Kicky socks!

What to do when several of your projects just seem to be dragging on and on (hello Cargo and bmp). . .Start something new, of course!

The black makes me happy. Suddenly the sock has more kick! The heels and the top of the sock will also be black.

Yarns: Knitpicks Felici in Coney Island plus Lang Jawoll in Black
Needles: size 1 bamboo dpns
Gauge: 9 sts/inch

I started with a figure-8 cast on, 14 sts per needle (28 total), increased to 60 stitches, and then zoomed around and around until it was time for the heel. I can't face doing another short-row heel yet, not after the whole bmp heel business. . .
