I knit this sock from Big Foot Knits for my daughter's principal, whose jolly attitude sets the tone for the whole school. I chose to knit someone else's pattern instead of designing my own because of my current lack of spare mental energy.
That didn't turn out so well. I love the finished sock and am more than halfway done with the second one, but it might have been less work to design my own. The pattern was riddled with errata and I was confused at several steps along the way.
I do not blame the designer, because I know how difficult it is to catch your own mistakes, especially when a pattern goes through several revisions. But a good tech editor should have noticed at least half of the errors in this pattern. I have found mistakes in every pattern I have knit from a Cooperative Press book.
My husband thinks the afterthought heel feels weird, but that may be because his foot doesn't quite fill up the sock. Our principal's feet are a little larger and I think they'll fit well.
