I love it when a stitch pattern looks far more complicated than it actually is. I love it even better when the stitch pattern is so easy, it practically knits itself.
When I tried on the sock to make sure I was ready to start decreasing for the toe, Matt looked over and said, “Cool! Looks like you’re about ready to start decreasing for the toe. That was fast.” Oh my goodness, he has become familiar enough with the terminology that he’s using it and correctly at that.
I finally FINALLY understand how to do a short-row heel. I don’t know why it took me so long to grasp such a simple concept. Derrrrrrr….
One sock down; one to go. Let’s hope it doesn’t take me a year to knit the second one. I think I am going to reverse the pattern so that I’ll have mirrored socks. Ooooh…. Also, thanks to Megan for the socky inspiration.
