|I was excited to find this book 1/2 price at the Sock Summit a few weeks back.|
|The end of the book is quite fun. The last several pages are split into thirds so you can mix and match the cuffs, legs, heels & toes. Fun! |
This is the sock I want to make...
short row heel,
The tricky thing about this method of heel is that there are some "k3togethers" as well as some "purl3together through the back loop", with the latter being even tricker than the former. Most of the patterns in the book call for casting on 64 stitches, which I find to be a rather large sock, even on really small needles. The patterns in the book are designed to a sock yarn called Tofutsies, which is rather light weight it seems. I think I'll have to alter the patterns a bit to use the yarn I have on hand, but I am excited to have added this book to my collection.
