somebody’s got a problem…

Chic Knits Knitting Blog

or not…

Is this an example of mid-summer startitis, (sock edition) or just Sombody-Loves-Turning-a-Good-Heel?

While organizing the stash for some fall designs, it was a short fall into the abyss of really pretty sock stash here at Studio Chic!

Having a plethora of #1 circular needles only aggravated the frenzy (there’s a couple of short “tubes” still at the ankle stage that didn’t make it into this picture).

Those, however are actually for a design that’s in the baby stages… :)

But I loove making a Dutch Heel with a slip-stitch flap! Send the interventionists!

 


…here’s the unscientific recipe that I wing it with…

Slip Stitch Heel Flap (worked over ~1/2 sock sts)

Row 1 (& all RSR): *Sl 1 pwise, K 1* rep across.

Row 2 (and all WSR): Sl 1 pwise, P across.

Rep last 2 rows until desired length.

 

Dutch Heel

Row 1 (RS): Sl 1 pwise, k ~2/3 of flap sts, ssk, turn.

Row 2 (WS): Sl 1 pwise, p across to 1 st before gap, p2tog, turn.

Row 3 (RS): Sl 1 pwise, k across to 1 st before gap, ssk, turn.

Rep until all sts are worked.

If I had the elusive druthers, all I would ever knit is socks. That’s right.

And most likely, Stockinette socks!

Just go round and round and round – it’s so soothing…

(and right joyful to look at when the colors are so lovely together!)

This is some yarn found at the last Renegade Fair I went to in Chicago from TravelingRhinos in a fun colorway called ORCA.
