What I learned: I have a deep heel so knitting a 'toe' for a heel doesn't work for me. Love the sewn hem for a cuff, it's totally stretchy and way easier to get right on the first try than casting off with larger needles. I think it looks nicer than a regular sewn cast off and gives a firmer edge too. I don't mind pulling these on just holding the hem. A pint glass makes a great knitting tool. How to dye self-striping yarn; and I love it.
I'll be wearing these quite often the rest of the winter. They're the perfect thing to brighten up a dreary day. They just plain make me happy.
