Two at a Time Toe Up Socks with a Fleegle Heel
I took a class to make these socks a few months back. I was unhappy with these socks because the yarn is scrawny and the needles I used were too big. The combination created loose, messy/stretched out looking knitting when I put the socks on my feet. The photos above are pictures I snapped and sent to the class instructor. I kept asking, "should I start the heel yet?" Kind of like "are we there yet?" Ha, ha!
I liked that I added some mock cables to the socks. I also liked that I learned toe up cast on called "Judy's Magic Cast On".
I liked knitting the Fleegle Heel.
I liked that I learned a new bind off called "Jenny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off".
I was going to frog these socks and I tried them on one last time before I did. The socks are a tad long (I started the heel a bit too late) and, like I said, I was unhappy with the yarn/needle combination. It occurred to me I could just knit about a dozen rows of k1 p1 ribbing and I would have the opportunity to try out the new bind off technique and I would have a nice short pair of socks. So that's what I did. I am happy I finished these socks. They do slip around on my feet when I walk around in the house, but I am done with the project and on to the next thing...
