FINISHED...pair of socks!
I did the top down, knit 2/Purl 2 for the ribbing.
And, for the heel
Wowza puhlooza! It was sooo much easier than any of the other heel
methods that I've tried over the years. I would get so discouraged doing
heels that I didn't want to start another sock, hence, quite a few unfinished
socks. Not anymore. I LUV this method. And, besides being easier to
remember and do, it fits so much better. It's more rounded like a person's heel.
I used markers...a LOT. But, it made it easier and quicker for me
to keep track of where I was, especially if I had to set the project down
and come back to it later.
Feeling more confident with the second heel,
I tried knitting without the space makers...oops! I think I will be using
all the (many) markers for a few more sock heels =).
Okay...they isn't all that perfect. But, meez feetz luvs them. =)
I've found it's fun to have a pair of "In-Progress" socks handy in
my purse or easy to grab when running out the door. I can knit
as a passenger in the car, in the doctor's office or other waiting times.
It's a small project and is easily carried around.
Any of you knit? Do you do socks? If you do knit...what are your
favorite things to knit?
