One geek sock is in the books! I literally used all but half a yard of yarn! I knit the afterthought heel from the outside of the ball as I went just to be sure. And then knit the leg until I reached the end of the skein.
The fit is pretty good. The leg might even be a little tight. But I think this will help them stay up. Now to crack open my second ball of yarn and start sock #2! I predict a sweetly addicting second sock 😃
