Notes: I did the 2×2 rib because I thought there was a decent chance kiddo would want to claim these as hers 😉 And she does. Because hey – souvenir from mom being with her at nationals. So now I need to measure her fav socks before I cut into them for heels. Sigh.

5-31-21 I decided to give my brain a break and just put the heels in the sock snake after the cuffs and then cut for the foot accordingly. I lost about 2 inches of knitting, but I just frogged that yarn and used it for the toe. Firs ttime in awhile I didn’t do contrast anything, but simple is the order of the day at the moment.
