Look, Ma, No Holes!

This, my friend, is a sock heel with no holes, thanks to Wendy Johnson, the Goddess of Socks. I don't have the book -- yet -- but somebody at Ravelry pointed me towards her heel-turning technique, and it works! Hallelujah!

Now I just hope the sock will fit!

In other happy news, tomorrow I give my Tolkien final. Of course, the semester starts a week from Monday and I'm already ridiculously behind, thanks to sock-knitting, but, as I always tell myself, Everything Will Get Done Somehow. And in the meantime, I won't be falling out of my socks.

Oh, note to Lee: on the previous pair, the good bind-off is actually the one on the right, not the left. The left looks neater, but that's because it's a tight weave, which means that getting the sock on your foot is difficult and uncomfortable. On the right-hand sock, I used a much stretchier bind-off, so the sock goes on and off without any trouble. Not as pretty, but much more comfy!

  1. Well, yeah, I can see how cutting off circulation with a too tight binding might be a not good thing. Thanks, Susan!

    Are you going to knit some to color match your favorite scrubs? That would be fun and cheeful. And warm in winter!
