Turning the heel
So I started my first heel. I worked a gusset heel, mostly because that was what my instructions said to do with a top down heel.
I also have their, quick tips and TYV: Crochet, which is the one I bought first back when I was only a crocheter.
I’ve probably had this book over a year by now, so its nice to finally be putting it to use. I still did not finish the heel but I think I am doing pretty well.
It looks like a proper sock now right? So like everyone whose ever knit a sock has said, turning a heel is not scary. I mean if i can do it while drinking high percent beer, in a semi dark bar, and on the subway/bus it can be done.
I may do an afterthought heel on the next one, but as I am off to Geek Knitting tonight I can pick up more yarn at La Casita and possibly metal DPNs. I also now have things I “need” to pick up at Comic Con, for the stockings as I get more ideas. Though I do wonder where I can get my hands on a fabric Guinness logo.
I made it to the decrease on the bus today, I may have been working on fingerless gloves on the subway. But I think this first sock should be done by tonight. It also seems to have used an entire skein of lamb’s Pride bulky.
Socks Left to knit = 15
Socks knit = 0
Did I mention that this is a tester? I dislike how the pattern turned out, and that I didn’t continue to work on it on the foot. While I am still hoping for a blocking miracle I don’t think this will be gifted to anyone.
