Friday Harbor

Friday Harbor Socks from Knitting on the Road
Yarn: Sheep's Gift in Black Cherry
Needle: US 3 Addi Turbo using magic loop method
Changes: I made my leg a lot shorter than the pattern called for. I wasn't sure how many Chart 1 repeats I would need to do on the foot. I made a guess but when I finished Chart 2 I was already practically at the end of the toe. I did a simple set of decreases at four points every other row until I had 12 stitches on each needle (24 total). I passed the first and last stitch on each needle over it's neighbor and kitchenered the remaining 20 stitches.
