I’m going to slowly work my way through the socks in Cookie A’s new book, knit.sock.love. Hedera is the first design featured in the book, and I had a skein of Wollmeise 80/20 in Mistelzwieg  already wound and ready to knit. I have finished the first sock. It was a simple knit, and the fit is  wonderful. I have finally learned to knit the heel flap longer so that the sock doesn’t stretch so much over my high instep. I also cast on 70 stitches, which is more than my usual 58-66. Since I use 00 needles (1.75 mm), I get a good tight gauge that will hopefully translate to a pair of socks that will last through a lot of wear.
