Sock Plans

Start of a new sock

I have started a new sock using Fortissima Mexica in colour 908. I am using 2.75 mm zings.

I have started with a 2 by 2 twisted rib, which I really like, however I cast on 76 stitches (seems too many, but that was what my swatch suggested) and I want to use crosshatch lace, which is a multiple of 6. So I need to drop to 72 stitches. I can rip out what I have done and start again.
