One down, Three to go

Posted by mtmom on May 28, 2009

Robert‘s socks are growing pretty steadily.  Ankle is now between 6 1/2″ and 7″ tall; total needs to be over 17″ for each sock.Robert's Sock, 6+ inches into the ankle

Meanwhile, I’ve tackled the least-damaged of Aaron‘s socks.  reinf heel

I reinforced the heel-back, where all the other socks boasted huge holes, using Wooly Nylon from my local sewing shop.  In times past, I’ve bought this online from Meg Swansen at Schoolhouse Press.  Hers is double thick, which I think I prefer when carrying along while knitting, but this is local, which is faster and philosophically desirable.  (Nice folks over at Odegaard’s.)nylon

And I fixed another small hole up near the cuff — this heathered yarn makes it hard to see individual stitches as I work.  The cuff will cover this when it’s folded down.
