On The Needles - July 13, 2012

Happy Dance in my new socks!!!  I got them done. 

This was my first experience with doing an "afterthought heel".  It wasn't as difficult as I had imagined, but I did have to be careful to get all the stitches back onto those size 1 needles as I removed the waste yarn.  I made the first heel too long and had to go back and take out a few rows. 

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit Patchwork Times and see what others have been up to this week.

Happy Knitting, Sewing, and Quilting!!!

  1. They look good. Love the little bit of pooling. How do you feel about pooling? At first I tried to avoid it but now I love it.

    1. Thanks, Judy. I don't mind the pooling. I like the idea that the yarn creates the stripes and I don't have to change colors to achieve the look.

    1. Thank you, Judy. They are really soft. Wish I knew the name of the yarn.
