Matching Socks

Well, I finished the socks to go with the sweater. I knit these with one circular needle, using Magic Loop method. Cast on 72 sts with 3.5mm needle, using continental method. I knit 24 rows of 2x2 rib using 2mm needle. I then knit the body using 2.25mm needle, increasing to 80 sts by increasing 4sts after first 4 rows and then again after another 4 rows. The heel was done using a modified Sherman Heel. Modified because I no longer know if I follow the pattern, I just do it. I do know that I slip sts on the way back which the original doesn't. Whatever, I find this the easiest heel to do and by far the best looking with no holes.
