Toe up, 2 at a time socks done on magic loop. I was doing so well after the Turkish caston and up the foot that I was overconfident when it came to the heels. I had turned a heel once on dpn’s and so I thought i could do it. I charged on through (my first time using sock yarn and size 1 needles) and ended up with big ridges up the sides and big holes at the top ( I could fit my pinky fingertop through the holes). Ug.
So I ripped them out, then went over a couple short row heel tutorials again, and worked on them using worsted weight yarn, and finally reattempted last night. It took me almost 3 hours to turn 2 heels!
It turns out I had been picking up the wraps from the top down instead of bottom up the first time, if that makes sense. Also I needed to hold the wraps pretty tight when wrapping to prevent the extra slack from making a big hole at the top. And I picked up stitches at the corners and knit them together with stitches.
NO HOLES! Wooooohooooo! :happydance: :happydance:
