I was doing toe-up, two at a time socks using a pattern stitch out of Sensationa Knitted Socks and planned on doing short row heels. As I approached the heel, I happened to watch the KG episode with Cookie A. I thought, oh great, a short row heel with a gusset! How cool! I knit gussets on both socks.
Then I figured, since I am kind of fudging this, maybe I’d better do the short row heels one at a time. That way, if the fit is not good, less frogging. Sooo, I did one. And it was perfect! Perfect!
Then, I put that one aside and did the gusset and short row heel on the other sock. See the problem??? I did the gusset stitches twice! Veeery big heel! What a pain.
I just frogged back to the middle of the gusset and picked up the stitches. Thank got the pattern over the top of the foot is not that complicated or I never would have been able to do it.
I will never ever EVER knit just one again!
