Playing around with a new sock idea as well as experimenting with a short-row heel. The short row heel is a lovely way to go about things, especially if one wants to work top down or equally bottom up, its the same either way. The toe of this sock will be the same both ways too, which I will show off soon. I am actually getting quite excited with the prospect of the dual directional sock! Oh, but already I caved in from my no-yarn-buying expectation, and bought yarn for this upcoming design, because I really want this next design to have a snowy halo of mohair, while at the same time be a rustic tweedy single ply, and there’s only one yarn that I know of, because I have some from another design, and that is Isager Irish Tweed, which is spun in Donegal. Just ordered the yarn, which won’t ship until after the election, and when it arrives I will be busting out of the starting gate on this. So excited! Exciting times!!
Thats going to be super pretty!
Thank you! The heel is so easy! But now I must be off for my walk before the day grows old, as I’ve walked almost every day this Walktober!
Jen, your sock is looking wonderful.
Thank you Wen! Hey, so this is ” the ” short-row heel I’ve been refining, and if you still want to test knit either the colorwork design, or the basic sock (dual directional) I will send you updates to my drafts, as well as heeps of gratitude! xx
I would love the updates, thank you very much.
