Tuesday Knitting Report

Last week I had just started the heel flap on sock #2. Now I am halfway to the toe decrease. I have only been knitting a few rows a night. I am almost falling asleep in the chair, so I give up and go to bed.

In January, Judy L posted here about using her knitting needle to measure her sock length. What a light bulb moment for me! I no longer use the tape measure for anything other than the heel flap length and if I ever remember, I'll see how I can measure that with my fingers. I'm excited about remembering how to do the heel turn without having to look at any of the instructions now. If only I could remember how to do the Kitchener stitch but I can't so I keep my book handy.

We'd make a good pair: I can remember the kitchener just not the heel flap.

Soon, your socks will be finished and on your feet.

I fold the heel flap over to match up the live stitches on the needle to the side edge (it will form a perfect triangle). I like to then do a couple of extra rows before I start to turn the heel. No need for a tape measure.

I want to learn how to knit, and crochet...and tat!!! Like quilting and jewelry doesn't already keep me busy enough!
