How to Choose Your Sock Heel

When knitting socks there are a lot of options. You can work your socks on double points, magic loop, or two circulars. You can knit one at a time, two at a time, or two at a time with one nested inside the other. You can choose to knit toe up, top down, side to side, or from the heel out.

Today’s post is about the heel of your sock.  Check it out HERE!…

Thank you so much!  You are so sweet!  I am just starting back into knitting after taking a couple months off for the summertime.  I am doing my first fair isle pattern and had to start over several times but now I have it going along well and it is looking great!  It's a hat and there are also matching gloves that I will make.  I am going to love wearing them when I am finished.  

Take Care and enjoy your pre-holiday projects!

Thanks so much for the Birthday Wishes...hardly get to knit seems the older I get the less time I have. It's my goal to try and get it in as our little Ava gets older.
