Neon Socks

Since my last post  I recieved 2 requests for socks in the beautiful Neon yarn I purchased.  So I decided to start working on the first pair.  I’m using the pattern that I found on Plymouth yarns website that actually is for these socks.  It is their basic sock pattern.  This actually worked out because I was wanting to knit a basic rib sock anyways.  But the thing is, this pattern has the heel done in short rows.  I’ve never done short rows.  I’ve heard them mentioned in blogs & pod casts, even while I was in my LYS.  And I knew I would eventually come across a pattern that calls for short rows.  So, here I am, ready to start the heel & I am sooooo scared!  LOL  well, not really scared, but just worried that I will not do it correctly & have to rip everything out.

I read the pattern over & over and I kept asking myself where is the heel flap!  Am I missing something?  Did they forget to put it into the pattern?  Oh boy!  I’m telling you, last night I just put my little sock down & started working on something else.
