FO Report: Widdershins

Pattern: Widdershins
Needles: Knit Picks size 1
Started: July 26, 2007
Finished: August 12, 2007
Modifications: The pattern was written for a different gauge yarn than I used, so I had to adjust the number of stitches to knit, plus the number of increases for the gusset and the number of stitches for the heel flap. I also used the cast on and short row toe from Wendy's Detailed Toe Up Sock pattern. I had approximately 20% more stitches and rows per 4" than the pattern gauge called for, so I increased all the stitch numbers and increase numbers by 20%. It worked like a charm. I also knit the leg in 2 x 2 ribbing instead of 1 x 1.
This yarn was gifted to my by my non-blogging friend Susan (thanks Susan!), and I actually think I have the same color in my stash. I also have two other skeins, and look forward to using them all! I really liked it, but haven't seen it used much. It is a cotton / wool blend and is machine washable. These socks are color #792, Dungarees.

Until I get better at socks, I think I'll just knit them as directed, for the most part, and see who they end up fitting! And hope it's me!
