- My tension was the same as the label, however, I think that this yarn would be better on slightly smaller needles for a sturdier end result.
- I followed the pattern's yo technique for the short row heel and toe - next time I will try the Knit Encroachment and Purl Encroachment stitches for the short rows for a tidier, sturdier miter.
- I bound off using the zig-zag technique from the pattern. I found it difficult to complete this bind-off neatly. The limited elasticity of the yarn contributed to this problem, but I am not too fond the resultant ridge. I redid the right toe because I was so unhappy with the result (the picture is of my first attempt). Next time I will definitely graft the toe to the foot (Kitchener Stitch).
I also wonder how this yarn will wear. Only time will tell.
(I have a number of other projects completed or nearly done, so check back later this week for more updates.)
