Last night, I turned the heel on the new STR sock club sock and in a flurry of knitting, worked my way almost to the toe.
I loved the slipstitch (purl) heel so very very much that I stopped mid heel to snap a few pictures for posterity.
The heels are made by slipping knit and alternating purl stitches and then purling back across. This means that not once do you ever knit a stitch when working the heel! Who would have thunk it, right?
And, it makes a very cool looking and very textured inside of the heel.
And, today I have one more thing to show you.
A year ago, Bunny & I went to my LYS and picked up some Butterfly super10 cotton in a pretty yellow color. Bunny picked out the color and it’s so sunny that it made me happy to cast on for a new cardigan for her.
Miles and miles of stockinette make for mindless (and somewhat soothing) knitting.
