Now I am sitting in the kitchen, catching up on reading, with this pain still behind my right eye; this is the brow bone that hit the steering wheel when I totaled Ronnie’s truck. Not something I blogged about (that I remember). My hope for today is to be able to at least start the kefir bread so it can be baked tonite and do some knitting – soothing, satisfying, stress relieving activities.
My question for you is on turning the heel. What I have read online is to always follow the directions – I usually do. What catches me is the last part of these instructions:
Turn Heel (Wrong Side): Sl 1, P10 (12, 14), P2 tog, P1, turn.Continue in this manner – do they mean repeat the last two rows until the required number of stitches remain? For some reason, when I do this, the heel does not work out right; meaning it looks bad and as if it would be uncomfortable to wear. Any knitters out there with some help? This poor sock has been frogged back to the heel flap so many times, I am just tired. The first pair of socks I knitted, not sure how I got through the heel, it is wearable and not uncomfortable, just…well…. odd. Perhaps this is the source of my headache? (proally not).
Next Row: Sl 1, K5, sl 1, K1, psso, K1, turn.
Next Row: Sl 1, P6, P2 tog, P1, turn.
Next Row: Sl 1, K7, sl 1, K1, psso, K1, turn.
Continue in this manner, working 1 st more st before the dec every row until 12 (14, 16) sts rem, end right side row.
