i'm looking at this sock pattern
that i am itching to start (and just got my new KP DPNs in the mail for it!) but the gauge is 18 sts x 26 rows = 2" st st in the rnd.... do I REALLY have to do that in the round? I am so too lazy for that....
also, there are all kinds of modifications for sizing in this pattern, but do you think that the toe size will automatically be ok for my fat man feet? (I have been longing for toe socks like this for about 8 years and have never seen them OR a knitting pattern for them, so I'm all farklempt and yeah, they're for me. ;-))
