I have just completed my “two at once toe up socks” from Knitpicks. I LOVE the way the “afterthought heel” looks.
I DON’T love a couple of other things, though, and I am certain it’s because I’m such an amateur that these things are there. The first is sort of “ladders” that happened between the two groups of stitches (because they were on different needles). How do I fix them and how do I prevent them? This never happened on my dpn’s!
The next thing is gaps where the heel is joined, even though I followed directions and picked up stitches from the body of the sock. I must not have done it properly? Any advice? I suppose I could pull the heels out and re-knit them… (it’s like the LAST thing I want to do, but it might be worth it.) Like I said, I love the look of this heel, but maybe all I really need is instructions to knit the heel as I’m knitting the sock if I can’t figue it out.
I really worked hard on these and want to do more - love making 2 socks at once! Also, circulars don’t seem to give me as much hand fatigue as the dpn’s. Can anyone give me tips for the next pair? I am ordering new sock yarn this week!
