My Bullseye Vanilla Socks are SUPER close to being done. I only need to put in one more afterthought heel.
I am pretty happy with how well I managed to plan the stripes and to get the socks to match. I did pull out some yarn to try and start at the same place. It’s not an absolute requirement for me in socks. But I do enjoy when they match.
I have cut in the space for the heel. I use the KirbyWirby afterthought heel with no waste yarn. It seems scary but it is really easy to do and doesn’t leave a hole at the corners. I can feel my mojo surging because I want a this finished socks SO BAD. The thought of new socks seems like the perfect balm to my soul right now.
Thanks for the link to the Kirby Wirby heel. Will try this on my next pair of socks.
Thanks for the link! I signed up for the Afterthought Heel class at KITH but not sure I’ll make it to that one, so I better find another way to learn!
Based on the current trajectory I think KITH will be postponed or canceled. And I understand why but I’m still sad because I have two classes with the Yarn Harlot
Yeah me too. I can’t believe they haven’t done it already, but I guess they’re trying to be optimistic. Maybe they’ll just postpone for next year!
Love them! I still get a little wiggy about cutting for the heel.
Im still not brave to handle after thought heals
