On The Needles - July 6, 2012

Well, more progress has been made on my socks, in spite of the holiday festivities this past week here at the lake. 

The blue stripe is the waste yarn I knit into the piece.  This is the location of the afterthought heel which I will insert after I'm done with the leg portion.  I decided to do knit 2, purl 2 ribbing for the legs, another first for me. 

Be sure to stop by Judy's blog, Patchwork Times, and see what others have on their needles this week. 

Happy Knitting, Sewing, and Crafting!!!


  1. I have recently read about adding the heel later-very interesting. I am getting ready to try some different heel patterns since I have intermittent problems with that little hole that appears no matter how tight I think my yarn is.

    Have you tried this type of heel before?

    1. No, this will be my first go at the afterthought heel. It is recommended in cases where a replacement heel may be needed due to excessive wear. Thanks for stopping by Judy.
