I have finished my first Solstice Slip sock.  I really like it.  The more muted, less varied yarn is beautiful.

 

First, my lovely garter stitch heel. It’s nice not to have to pick up wraps on a short row heel!

 

Against the pattern, I decided to do three rows of 3×2 rib before binding off.  I think this was a mistake.  The cuff would be plenty loose enough without that step. So, I am pretty sure I’ll be undoing my cast off and ripping back three rows.

 

I’m not a huge fan of the yarn in stockinette.  I like that it didn’t pool or flash or stripe TOO badly, but it is just a little boring. It really paired nicely with the more complicated pattern!

It really is hard to take a photo of your own foot!
