The Heel…for Lauren

December 1, 2007 at 8:18 pm | Posted in Holiday Knitting | 1 Comment

The Christmas stocking is done in the round – and where I want the heel, I stitch in waste yarn.  Then I continue to the toe.  I decrease the toe and then Kitchner to close it.  I go back to the heel and pick up the stitches top and bottom in the round.  I decrease it just like the toe and then Kitchner it to close it.  It couldn’t be simpler!  And I assume it would work on normal socks too – but I’ve not done it.

Let me know if you try it.  🙂

Look what nervous energy can do!

Just need to add the name and make the hanging loop….and make the other one! But I started this last night while watching a movie and it took 2 movies today!

So, there is a good side to being in a funk I guess!

Hold onto your socks!

If you can visit me in Ravelry – you need to do that – because I’ve finally taken photos of all of my stash! Well, the stash I’m going to admit to, anyway! I have tons more cotton and older project yarn…but I’m not going to worry about them right now! I’m Knitnmom on Ravelry if you haven’t added me as a friend yet!

In addition to buying new yarn, I’ve been knitting! I’ve just been bad about taking pictures! 🙂 So, hold onto your socks….here’s a firehose of projects! (Click on picture to make them bigger)

So, here’s an update in the photography department!

First, here is my September Socks…starting to turn the heel! I work two at a time…but I’m a chicken…when I start the heel flaps I move to two needles and work them independently…only moving both back to one needle when the heels are completely done!
