Lost in a sea of yarn and needles. Lusting after handmade socks and all things lacy


The garter stitch heel flap. I have just picked up the gusset stitches. This is the first time I have done a heel flap with a garter stitch border. I like the way it looks so far. As usual for me, I have a different number of stitches on each side of the sock. But will work them off in due time so they are all even again. I just pick up enough stitches so to have a good firm edge with no holes or spaces. The heel flap is a bit shorter then my usual heel flap. This is because the yarn is very stretchy and so is the lace pattern. Unlike the picture in Interweave Knits, I don't care for my socks all scrunched up around my ankles. If you look you can see the first row I did after picking up the gusset stitches is purl. This seemed to snug up the gusset stitches even more. A great pattern. Posted by Picasa
