My husband sock has a heel!
The 3×1 ribbing was very fiddly to pick up especially in dark yarn. But I got there!
And all in all I was left with a very nice stockinette heel via the afterthought heel. And my Kitchener is getting much better if I do say so myself. (Though I still look up directions every single time.)
I’m hoping by weeks end to have a complete sock for the hubby to try on. Fingers crossed anyway!
I couldn’t wait for FO Friday for these. My Happy Socks in Happy Feet are done. I dealt with that pesky dropped stitch. I had a teeny tiny ball of yarn left and they fit pretty well. Goals accomplished!
The 70 stitch count fits a bit better than the 68 I was using before, especially in the foot. I’m considering doing a hybrid on my next pair. Like a 70 stitch foot and a 66 or 68 stitch leg? That way they really hug each area.
I really like how the 2×2 rib keeps the sock from falling down. The yarn isn’t the softest but I think it will wear well. I used my own vanilla pattern and my notes are raveled here.
The best part? I can start my Rainbow Socks!!!
