:woot: Three weeks to make these, and they're a bit hard to get over the heel (because of the stranded color work), but they feel great once they're on. I'll definitely knit free-sole socks...

I had an epiphany about catching the floats on the WS. I decided to just knit backwards across the row (which I already knew how to do), instead of turning my work and purling. This has at least 3...
