My first ever socks
Pattern: My own (I did a gauge swatch, worked out how many stitches to cast on and took it from there), with inspiration from Knitty's Socks 101, Alison's short row tutorial and Nona's short row heel (which confused me a little because I didn't read closely enough to notice that it's a reverse stocking stitch heel, but once I'd worked that out, her tips on closing gaps were very useful. See also her comparison of different short row techniques.)
Yarn: Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Rainbow
Needles: 2.25mm dpns
Modifications: I knitted one sock toe up and one cuff down, using two different short row methods.
