I’ve turned the heel on my sock and now I’m knitting the heel flap (opposite to when you knit from the cuff down).
So far so good – although I think I am in a bit of denial as to how big this sock is going to be! Also, a fifth needle would be really handy – why don’t they come with a fifth needle bamboo needles do?
I decided it was time for a new sock knitting challenge (obviously not a pair a month because I failed that one!). I’ve never made toe up socks and so I decided it was time. I watched the DVD that came with the Sock Masterclass, which made it look extremely easy (of course) plus I liked the idea of being able to stop when you’ve had enough (once you’re on the leg).
I found a series of lessons here and I’m giving it a go – I’m pleasantly surprised so far. I think I only had to try casting on twice and I found instructions on symmetrical increases in the Sock Masterclass book – now I just have to work out the heel and gusset bits.
The yarn is just a patons classic 8 ply.
