The skirt, which I cannot show you even a bit of and that is so frustrating, is about to be done. I am casting off. Of course the cast-off involves I-cord so is 3 times as long to do as a regular cast-off. I love the look of I-cord so put up with the repeat stitches but like to whine about it.
*knit 2, slip 1, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over knit stitch, move 3 stitches to left needle* and repeat what seems like endlessly until one day in the far future you reach the last stitch.
One of the socks is ready for gussets and the other is 2 inches shorter. Once this skirt is done those socks will fly.
