See this Right sock here! It's dedicated to Cristi! Sniff...folks she knit part of that toe (shh don't tell her after I left her the toe..um..got reknit a coupla more times!) Way back in September, when I visited her, she showed me IRL the magic toe cast on ...fast forward to November (almost 2 mos to the day!) and she is showing me IRL short row heels. She was verrrry patient with me as I can get easily frustrated and after a few frantic emails about the leg part...you can see it in all it's glory! Have I told you today THANK YOU! Cristi!! She very patiently answered all my last minute emails and million and one questions!
Now onto the Left sock! You see the pattern is different on each side and this is the part where I wanted to stab myself...was the beginning of the foot pattern. Trust me, this is a super pattern!! It was definately user error big time. I can't count sometimes! I frogged 3 times and really tried to tink back to a mistake, but it was usually with the YO's and got messed up/dropped stitches, etc.
I didn't give it up! (You see, I won't let myself cast on any other socks until these are done and I am itching to do some really quick and dirty worsted weight socks) So after reviewing the short row heel again, this time I really understand it...can you say duh!! I like it so far, we'll see how they wear. I really enjoyed doing toe ups...when I "got it"! ;)
Interesting pooling going on! I love it! The left sock is a bit baggy right now. Hoping a good blocking will cure that..if not we'll see!
