|I'm using Encore yarn.|
We got a good start on the leg/cuff, and their week's homework is to finish the desired length on the leg and knit the heel flap. And when we get together on Thursday, I'll walk them through turning the heel and picking up stitches for the gusset. Can't wait.
I've got a little surprise. Since I also make jewelry, I thought I'd make a pair of stitch markers for them. In Galina Khmeleva's lace knitting class, I learned that it can be helpful to have two different colored stitch markers when you are wanting to keep track of where you are ...green for "go" and red for "stop" ...which will translate into keep going after you've worked the first decrease on the gusset on Needle 1, and round 1 stops after working the 2nd decrease and finishing Needle 2.
In lace work that looks the same on both sides, the red marker can mean RS (right side); green marker, WS. Pretty handy tip.
