And I discovered a little trick to keep the early rounds from flipping over when doing the magic loop technique: tying a button or stitch counter to the rest of the casting-on strand. In case you are wondering, the light thread is sea green Cebelia #3 cotton. I did an eye of partridge heel flap and a French heel instead of the plain heel flap and short row heel. I'm actually done decreasing the gusset sts here; just have to get D#1 to stand still long enough for a measurement so I know when to start the toe. Easier written than done!
