... i want to knit a toe up sock. i am not a fan of the short row heel. nor am i a fan of the bind off methods of toe up. but, i am a wee bit curious to try the reverse gusset with heelflap.
so, of course, i picked a pattern full of short row parts (heel and toe) ! but, i have a plan .... maybe.
this is knitty's falling leaves sock. the toe begins with a provisional cast on and proceeds with short rows, full of yo's and turns and untwisting. i was too lazy to read the instructions, so i just did a crazy 8 (that's what i call it, whatever it's really called) cast on, starting with the toe tip, and increased from there.
now, all those wordy instructions will come up again at heel time. but, i think i'm going to try the heel from knitty's diamante instead (both of these sock patterns are 72 sts.).
i've been told that i work awfully hard to be lazy ....
c.o. 10 sts each needle, +'d to 18 sts e.r., +'d to 36 sts e.o.r.
