First Sock

Actually, its my second. The first was so bad, I just ripped it out!

100% cotton, Peaches and Cream, lemon and lime, 50g ball.  44 stitches round to a guage of 5 stitches / 6 rows per inch

Ankle is too loose and too short.  Began ribbing for instep too late and also stopped it too late.  Have adjusted pattern accordingly.  Over all foot length too short.  Just fits and when blocked will be too small.

adding 3 rows on ankle after ribbing.  adding an extra 3 rows on foot length.  These will probably never be worn with shoes, but will make excellent bed socks!
