Snow is my favourite kind of precipitation and even I looked out the window this morning and thought, “Hey now, that’s enough.”
Luckily I have a pair of finished socks to take the edge off.
In a move which makes me feel like a crazy person, I added some slipped stitches to the plain part of the heel because a stockinette stitch heel just looked kind of unnatural. This required a few short rows to keep my heel flaps square. You are probably less attached to the slip stitch heel than I am. I also stopped the cable and knit my standard toe, which was less a matter of principle and more a matter of laziness.
Specs: a.m. socks in Sanguine Gryphon Eidos I’ve had forever. Colour is called The Death of the Object and, remarkably, looks prettier knit up.
