I have found my sock mojo.
Yarn: Trekking XXL (my very first!); colour 140
Needles: 2.25mm dpns
Pattern: toe-up; cast on 60 sts; 2x2 ribbing on the leg
Notes: I made sure the 2 socks matched. Normally, I wouldn't care but these will be gift sox.
And since I don't have any other knitting to show you, here's a cat picture of Ricky trying to eat my squid snacks.
