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.
