My first issue is a stupid one: I only have one small circular needle and it is 2.75mm and is probably giving me too loose a gauge. This matters on the leg and I suspect I am going to be making slouchy socks. However, my daughter is a dancer and might like the legwarmer look...?
This is a quarter of a sock. You are looking at it side-on with the foot along the bottom, the heel turn and the lacey leg.
