So - I came back into the AC and bound off my second sock:
I still love these. Sure, they are hard to get over my heel, but once on - feel wonderful!
Pattern: Cleopatra's Stockings, size medium, 0 DPNs
Notes: Most of my observations I posted after finishing the first sock. If I were to knit them again (and I may!) I would do the larger size.
Started May 28th, finished June 8th.
Onto some baby knitting!
