heel flap the second



i am a few rows away from finishing the heel flap on the second sock. i decided not to frog back to the toe because the sock sizes are almost identical, i only added one row at the very beginning of the cable repeat after the toe. so yes, they aren't perfect but they will be gift socks since this colorway is not really something i would wear often. speaking of which, the last six pairs of socks i have knit have not been for me. i think the next pair i cast on after these will be thelonious socks for me.

You know...you really should rip back.



Just kiddin! They look great. :) You are so sweet for knitting so many socks for others!

LOL@cinnamonamon. Very interesting colorway. I must have missed your original post with the yarn info. I'll have to go hunt it down.

Looks great and I love your (matching?!) sock bag!

morticcia: it's posh yarn lucia in the rainbow colorway, the sock bag was made for me by ms. b of knitters uncensored fame.

I think your recipient will really enjoy those socks. It's such a happy colorway, but then I'm a sucker for color.

Thelonious is on my to-knit list too, but I keep getting distracted. ;) I'm sure yours will be gorgeous.
