Sue's Belated Birthday Socks

Sue's Belated Birthday Socks

I'm not sure why, but these socks took forever to knit. It probably has to do with the anxiety I was experiencing over not knowing what the hell I was doing with the calf increases, but, as you can see, I got over it. I did a provisional cast-on and starting just above the heel, knit down to the toe. I did this instead of knitting toe up because sue needed a reinforced toe and I only knew one way to do it. I then knit up from the provisional cast-on, faking the increases, until I ran out of yarn. The yarn is Lorna's Laces Shepard Sock yarn (80% superwash wool; 20% nylon) in Happy Stripe (602).
