Third time's the charm

What did I say about the XL XXL heels?
I'm leaning toward short row heels because that's the type of heel I used for SO's first pair of socks. No fancy figurin' would be a good thing.

No fancy figurin' was true, but I didn't count on having to do 1/2 a heel... three times.

I won't go into the details 'cause I don't have photos of all the different versions. Besides, how interesting would that be? Let's just say that I've always been wrapping stitches incorrectly and have been knitting wraps and stitches together incorrectly.

But with Spinnity's help (Spinnity who took a short row class), I got some advice and was able to finish that pesky 1/2 a heel last night.


Taa daa! A perfect fit.

  • That's a WONDERFUL picture and I like the lifeline ... I had already thought of adding something like that to mine just in case.
