Objecto finito

Vesper Knit and Tonic Socks, size 1 needle.

The pattern, if I wrote it, would go something like this: cast on 8 sts using Queen Kahuna's Aloha Cast-on (ignore the part where she says it has to be an odd number, just use the basic movement to cast on 4 st per needle). Work a round toe - knit one round; k1fb all sts next round (16), knit 1 round; k1, k1fb around (24), knit 2 rounds; k2, k1fb around (32), knit 3 rounds; k3, k1fb around, continue this till you have 64 sts (hint: remaining increase round stitch counts are 40, 48, 56, 64 - increase 8 per round - just write it out for yourself). Knit stockinette till 2 inches are left before heel. Work a nice short-row heel. Change to 2x2 ribbing and knit till they are as long as you like. Use a crochet hook to bind off.

Easy as pie. Terrifying pattern, I know, but 'tis simple. Just short. If you write out the line instructions for the round toe you'll be able to do it whenever you want as long as you have your paper. You can do it! :)

Happiness for my feet! (El Happio Feeto.)
