Stripedy socks

So, I wanted to attempt a short row heel.  I also wanted to try self striping sock yarn.  Here is my initial attempt at both.

short row heels need some practice.  Stripey yarn is cool.  Now my daughter says “mommy, will you do some stripe socks with your knitting for me?”  So I need to find some children’s sock patterns!

  1. Psychedelic socks, man! They’re neat & Molly likes them too. You’re gonna’ have to make some toe socks one day. 😉

  2. Lovely yarn, What is it?

    I have so much trouble with short-row heels in stocking stitch. 👿 I’m doing my latest pair with garter-stitch instead.

    Oh, and if you’re up for a meme, I’ve tagged you! 🙂 Check my blog if you fancy doing it.
