The leg of this first Hourglass sock is about halfway and you know, this pattern is actually a lot easier than I thought. After knitting the first few rows of the first chart I thought uh oh, this is going to be painful, but so far it's quite the opposite especially having dispensed with the P2Togtbls.
It's very pretty too. My sister had a look at them and has called "dibs", which suits me fine; what she didn't know was that I had picked out this yarn with her in mind.
One thing that's troubling me though: the leg is knit across 70 stitches. Will that make for a baggy sock? Should I switch to smaller needles for the foot? The leg's knit on size 1-1/2 (2.5mm) so I could easily go down a size. All advice welcome!
