[color="#330099"]Your question made me think of that old Pantene comercial.
Don't hate me because my stranding is beautiful.
I though I'd only done stranding in the round and not back and forth. I guess I was thinking you were doing intarsia (instead of carrying the color along) just because it was a heal flap and not in the round. Then I remember that red and white thing I made. (Image above).
1) You may notice the red showing through the white and the puckering from uneven tension. :think:
2) I also worked the even numbered rows from left to right (knitting back) instead of turning and purling back. I used my left hand and I ended up twisting the stitches. :shrug:
3) It is one sided and acrylic. It is too thin for a pot holder or a hot pad. It is really quite useless. :doh:
4) Stockinette wanted to curl, so I edged it with single crochet. That wasn't enough so I steam ironed it and melted it a bit too. :roll:
