What Heel?

For some reason I lost my avid sock knitters mojo last fall. Not sure why, it left late in the night and I began tank tops and sweaters that have yet to be finished.... they stare at me every time I pass my nightstand and end tables.... Ugly reminders of how I can't seem to finish anything knit related!

I was digging' on Rav. and happened upon the "Lifestyle Sock" hmmmm, Toe Up? Let me give that a whirl again..... I began with my Judy Becker magic cast on and fell in love! The foot went by in a virtual flash and it was time for the heel... Heel? I hate short row heels! What to do? I tired a "short row hell".... Nasty! I tried my first backwards gusset heel (i favor gussets)... All I can say is that I loved the method so much it left me hungry for more! It's almost a sickness now to finish this sock! It has gone from 16 toe stitches to nearly done in 48 hours... Avid has returned!


In my quest for more patterns to exploit my new found love of toe ups and backward gussets I found this:


And there is a 2 yesr KAL to go with it on Ravelry. Of course book is purchased and KAL has been joined. Mama Llama is even donating a few prizes ;)


I am Wooly now!
