Socks are a bit large, but otherwise beautiful.
So here is my second pair.
|Adding the waste yarn|
|Picking up the heel stitches|
After knitting in the waste yarn, you keep knitting up the sock in a tube. Taking out the waste yarn this time was easier, since I knew what I was doing. Then I just pick up the stitches making sure to keep the stitch from being twisted. Eh voila! I can now start my heel. For this pair, I knitted 4 rows of plain knitting before decreasing to give a little more length in the heel. I could always add an extra plain row to give more length if needed. I made sure to keep trying on the socks to make sure I had enough heel room. The result is a beautiful pair of socks!
