Summer of Socks and a productive day...

Pattern: Summer 2008 Socks by Wendy Johnson
Yarn: Schachenmayr nomotta Regia Silk Color #0189
Needles: US1.5 (2.5mm) HiyaHiya 40"circular.
Construction: 2 at once, toe-up. 56sts around on the foot. The sock is largish and slouchy so at the heel flap I reduced stitches to 24 on the back of the leg (52 total). I think the slouch is due to a combination of the pattern and the silky yarn. They are lovely summer socks!
Started: June 26th
Finished: July 9th

Are toe up socks easier to knit?
