Thoughts on designing

Needing summer socks, I went shopping for cotton yarn.  But seeing bamboo blends, decided to try one.  This is Babyboo Knit One Crochet Too.

It called for number 5 needles, so since I usually use two sizes smaller for socks I used 3s.  Usually I get one sock out of 50 grams, but I had to buy a third to do the last 1 1/2-2 inches of the toe.

The moral of that story is learn to do toe up. And I am signed up for a class in just that starting May 18.

Do I dare say I designed them? Seems overstated for finding a lace ribbing stitch in Barbara Walker’s Encyclopedia of stitches, and adjusting it to fit around my ankle.  When do you say designed, Vs. improvised, Vs. adapted?
