My First Heel!

So I did it – my first heel on a sock! I’m pretty pleased with it.


I think I’m getting the hang of this “pick up the wraps” thing. The heel wraps are all flat. I put the wraps behind the actual stitch. I don’t know if that’s the normal way you do it, but it just felt right. I do have one small hole where the short row heels end. I probably should have picked up a second stitch. I think I caused the stitches to stretch that much by trying it on so often! So I’ll have to contain myself with sock #2 and just let it evolve.
I did a little more work on Rogue too. Actually, most of the work was in winding the hank into a center pull ball. I really need to just suck it up and get a ball winder and swift. Every time I get ready to though, I just think about all the yarn I could buy instead!
*sigh* We should all have such problems, right?

  1. Jody, that hole is the bane of a sock knitter’s existence. It is certainly not you! Toe up, top down, doesn’t matter. That hole just happens. Picking up another stitch probably would have solved it. Just know that it happens ALL THE TIME!
