Have any of you switched to combination knitting? I just tried out the combination purl along with the compensation in the knit stitch and my fabric was sooooo nice. It was much firmer and more even than my usual flat stockinette. I now have no fear of making heel flaps knowing that my heels will be as nice and even as the rest of my sock.
Now I just have a whole new bunch of interesting things to learn, like how to compensate for combination knitting in my decreases and such. I’m rather excited!
