I have finally finished my Hugs and Kisses socks, after redoing the top of the one I messed up. I also redid the casting off about four times to get it loose enough. I had a lot of moral support from Susan, the designer. I also ran out of the rose yarn, so had to start the blue a little earlier than normal for the toe. This is the first time I have used reinforcing thread in the heel and toe, and I ran out of that, too. I cast on for another sock right away.
