Louise's Blogmas Day 7 - Afterthought heels and toes - Part 1
Afterthought heels and toes - Part 1
Finishing Christmas socks.
What I am working on?
The yarn is Opal in the colour Reganwald 14- 9620. I started the tube with a 2 x 2 ribbing for 15 rows. I then knitted until the tube was 21 inches. Then I did more ribbing and cast off using Jenny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off. This is not a tutorial just a step by step guide to how I made my sock.
First I folded the sock tube in half and put a stitch marker in the half way point.
I put waste yarn two rows below and two rows above the stitch marker. I picked up the right leg of every stitch in a row.
I then cut the stitches along the the row where the stitch marker was.
Ta dah two socks :-)
I picked up the stitches where the waste yarn was placed and then removed the waste yarn.
I then made sure I had the right number of stitches on each needle.
Toe complete and ready for the kitchener stitch to close the toe.
Tomorrow in part 2, we will put the heel in.
These are some of the videos I watched to help me;
What I have done today?
I have had a relaxing day today, mainly been knitting on my socks and doing lots of loads of washing.
Hope you have super weekend,
