I have yet another pair of socks to show you! These were finsihed in August but for some reason I never took a picture of them!
They are my Fireball socks knit with C*eye*ber Fiber yarn dyed by my friend Erin.
It's just a basic sock but I tried something new... an afterthought heel.
I didn't have any DPNs with me when I was knitting this - I was at the National Stitch and Pitch game - so instead I knit two rows on one side with scrap yarn, and kept on knitting! After finishing the toe, I went back and picked up the stitches on the scrap yarn and knit a second toe. I actually reall love how the heel came out and I may have to make more socks this way!
I have been experimenting with differnet sock heels lately. I forgot to mention that on the plain socks I knit from Rhinebeck I made a garter stitch heel:
A couple people have asked if this is a short row heel. It's not - it's actually just a heel flap that I knit in garter stich and then turned and picked up as normal. I love how squishy and flexible it is.
Happy Friday everyone!
