mojo number 1

These socks are so crazy. But comfy! The yarn is pooling strangely, I think in part because the changing ribbings makes things move around a bit differently (if that makes sense... I can't really find the right words to explain it, except that purling takes up a little more yarn than knitting so depending on what part of the sock you're on you'll get different amounts of yardage used).

I worked the afterthought heel with the sock inside out for this sock so that it would mirror the inside-out toe. Since the two socks are not identical, I'm excited to see how the second one will work up. Could be similar, could be totally different...
