February Sock is finished

I finished my February socks! Well ahead of schedule. These are ‘plain vanilla’ socks – the cuff is 2×2 rib and the rest stocking stitch.

I used heel stitch for the heel flap. The heel flap was 12 rows. I like to make the heel flap 3/4 or 2/3 of the number of stitches in the flap. It just seems to fit much better. But which fraction to use 3/4 or 2/3? I use the guide on knitty.com (less than 50 stitches use 2/3 otherwise 3/4 and the 50 refers to the entire sock not just the heel flap).

The toe is just a simple wedge and I used kitchener stitch to graft the final 8 stitches.

This was a very easy project (not to mention quick), but I’m going to try something more challenging for March.
