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


Thermopilized The Heel Flap

First off there are too many patterns going on. I am frogging back to the box part of the pattern.
The heel flap is done with a woven stitch, not slipped stitch. How clever this is for a sock, we shall see. It is certainly fun to do. And the shaded red yarn gets a chance to shine. I will probably reverse the flap design so that it is white boxes instead of red on the heel flap. This would echo the pattern of the leg, and not add to the visual confusion. And were off to the froggy pond.
The two raised rows at the base of the heel flap are actually life lines. I will sadly be frogging past them. Just so my brain doesn't explode picking up all those tiny stitches, I will pick them up first with a needle and thread.
