Soctober

How's your Soctober going? Check out this short-row heel tutorial. Very useful! I've done short-row heels before but I didn't do her trick of double-wrapping as you go back and forth picking up the wraps. I also especially like the tip of wrapping the first non-heel stitch to keep a hole from forming. (I always get that hole.) I'm going to be doing socks all summer, I think. (Link courtesy of Lara.)

This is how I always do them - these are the instructions that Wendy gives (without the pics)>Neat and tidy. I also pick up strands between the stitches in the corners and knit together them with existing stitches to prevent those holes in the corner.
