I finished sock one of the pair of socks I started yesterday. I only cast on late yesterday afternoon, so I think this makes this one of the fastest socks I've ever knit. It helps when I have amazing yarn to knit with.

I've already cast on for the second one, and I'm done a few of the cuff rows. I'm going to see how far I'll get with it tonight.
As I wrote yesterday, I was using this sock to try out a new way of working my wrapped stitches, and the new technique worked!
I double wrapped each side heel stitch and then used Cat Bordhi's technique. She is truly brilliant!
My other alteration, using 60% of the stitches for the heel to make it cup my heel better worked like a charm! It fits as perfectly as any heel flap sock would.
I think I am now an official short row convert.
