About 7 months ago, the first version of these were my second pair of toe-up, short-row heel socks.
The other pair is gray and black, which gives it a classier appearance. These are just fun, made out of some mysterious russian (I believe) sock yarn and some left-over Regia hand-dye effect.
Looking at these socks closely, I wonder if a gusset heel wouldn’t work better here … ah, who am I trying to kid? I know it would, but I haven’t yet found a method that does not drive me nuts. Does anybody have a link to a great toe-up gusset heel? I’d love to see it!
And we are not speaking about the clearly visible proof that counting to two sometimes is too much for me …
That being said, I wrote up the pattern, it just needs a few minor adjustments, and then I hope to find some willing <del>guinea pigs</del> test knitters who help me find any flaws. Once that’s done, I’ll make it available for download.
