So you may remember that I made these socks for my husband awhile ago.
I just really love this yarn. It is Cascade Heritage Prints in Baltimore. This yarn is just so perfect for sock making. It had the right amount of squish and bounce to create a nice fitting sock. I managed to find another 3/4 of a skein in my stash so I decided that I needed a pair too. Instead of creating an afterthought heel, I thought I would do a little experimenting. I wanted to try to figure out how to do a reverse gusset heel. I did a little internet research before hand to get the general concept, but to be honest I was really adamant to figure it out on my own. I apologize for not adding the websites I used. I had the saved…but then I forgot where I saved them.
Not bad for a first try right? I have to say that I miscalculated the number of short rows that I needed so I ended up with a weird looking seam. However when you wear the socks they are not that noticeable. I really like how this technique fits my heels. For some reason the afterthought heels are too shallow for my liking.
I most certainly will make another pair of socks in this way, but I think I need to find a few patterns/ guides to work out the details a little better.
What is your favorite toe up sock heel technique?
Until Next Time,
