I have been wanting to make some patterned socks for rather a long time, but most of my sock yarn is not suited to that. For the past couple years I have tried to remember that when buying sock yarn, to greater and lesser success.
This Regia yarn was essentially free in a Webs order last year b/c my total was enough to get the discount; said discount covered the cost of two skeins of this sock yarn.
1. Cast on to make these toe-up, not remembering that the pattern is top-down, and that if I want to make the cool heel pattern I need to knit them according to the pattern.
2. Cast on from cuff, work 2" of 1x1 ribbing. Discover that cuff is supposed to be k1tbl, p2.
3. Cast on following cuff pattern, work ~1/2". Discover that I twisted the knitting when I joined in the round.
4. Cast on following cuff pattern. Work 3 rows back-and-forth before joining in the round to ensure that work is not twisted.
