Just a plain toe-up sock with an afterthought heel. I had a little bit of a flub on the heel! 

Knits in Rehearsal

I mentioned doing a citric acid soak on my Madeline Tosh, here's the link to the post by Jasmin of the Knitmore Girls where she gives you instructions on how to soak your yarns.

I mentioned one of my go-to knitting reference books, The Knitter's Answer Book by Margaret Radcliffe.

I rescued the yarn for these socks from a long term WIP that was starting to make me feel guilty.
