I finally got round to the second sock in the pair that I started in early April. I was learning to do a short row heel. The heel of the first sock was just about OK but I could see that I needed to tighten up my tension as the stitches were a bit loose.
So when knitting the heel of the second sock I took extra care to keep the yarn tight and it’s worked. Take a look at the photo, you can see difference between the two heels. I did think about unravelling the first sock but in the end I stitched up any loose areas.
The yarn is Regia Mix It! Color , I just love the pattern it creates. What I like so much is that on the second sock there is no measuring, just follow the pattern of the first sock – well, as long as you remember to start the second sock in the same place in the yarn! The body is just stocking stitch with 10 rows of 1 x 1 rib for the cuff.
At the moment I’m favouring the short row heel over the heel flap and gusset method.
It’s not really woolly sock wearing weather (well today anyway, tomorrow could be a different story) so my feet were pretty warm taking the photo!
Hopefully we’ll have a good summer and I can get them out to wear in the autumn.
