Summer Sock Finish

And they're keepers.  The Hooligans agree!  We love this pattern.......well I do anyway.
Those faces might be saying " Make me my burger!" and not gee we love your new socks Mom.  But at any rate I love this pattern.  The "new to me" after thought heel technique was fun although
getting the rows of stitches above 
and below the marker was a bit tricky.  Having stripes would have made it easier to see or possibly new glasses and better lighting or all of the above.  LOL
In a couple places I was off a row and had to do some hair raising stitch saves but it all worked out in the end and I've already started another pair.  YEAH.........once I get hooked on something it's all hands in!  This time I'm going to make a more rounded toe.

  1. Such sweet faces dreamily looking at you, even if they are thinking about food and not that sock. You are brilliant making that heel the way you do.

  2. I haven't used the afterthought heel, but wonder if adding a lifeline on those two rows as you knit would make it easier.

  4. Im the same way with my knitting...in bunches of things. I love your roll top sock finish. I've done an afterthought heel, but I was afraid of dropping stitches.. Silly thing to fear.....but I've stuck to heel flap and knit the heel as you go since

  5. Those socks are nice but those fur babies!!!! Look at those sweet little faces. Louie is just the most precious thing. You should be happy I don't live near you. I'd be dropping him in my pocket and taking off!!!!
