the pattern is knit flat and then sewn together. i hate sewing things together but did that for the first pair just so i could see the construction. this pair, i am playing with the pattern and am trying to knit it in the round. i think i will be compromising on this in the future and will knit the cuff in the round and then complete the rest of the sox knitting back and forth. i don't like purling either. :oP haven't deciding whether i dislike purling or sewing more.
i have been working away on the mate for my waterlilies sock since last week. got to the end of the toe and took my progress shot. hey, i was on a roll!
