Logan's Carbon Steel Socks

Knitter: ThatLoganChick

Yarn: slightly less than one skein of Socks that Rock in "Carbon" for the body, and less than half a 50g ball of Regia Stretch (steel blue) for toes & heels

Construction: Precursor Toes & Afterthought Heels, Toe up construction over 64 stitches, 68 stitches for calf, 2x2 garter stitch ribbed leg & top of foot, picot edge cuff

Needles: 2.5mm dpns for toes & heels, 2.5mm Addi Turbo for magic loop (body of both socks, one at a time)

Washing: not yet washed

Comments: had hoped for more pooling or flashing, but am happy with striping on legs. This was my first use of the "magic loop" construction, and went really fast - will use the single circular needle knitting method again.

Glad to see this started up.

I hope to be finishing off a pair of socks this morning; will try to get pictures later today.

Your socks look nice!
