My socks are moving along fine now. I had to increase until the point when the sock covers the tip of my pinkie toe, now I just knit straight until I'm within an inch of my heel.
I'm a little displeased with the pointiness of the toes. Once I put the sock on my foot, it feels fine. It's just that when I show them to people on the needles, it appears I may be knitting these for my elvin friends. Also, I wanted to have the perfection of matching socks. Word to the wise, don't pull from the outside and inside of the ball simultaneously if you want this. What I have instead now, is a perfect opposite of each sock. Fantastic.
And Patty Ann, fyi, your sweater should be handwashed in mild soap and cold water. Lay flat to dry. Enjoy! Can't wait to see you wear it.
