Beth, I was so glad to read your comments on the short row heel. I finished my first one a week ago. It had holes, esp. the second one. I too darned them up. Actually looked pretty smooth. I saw a sample in the new Presque Isle Mall knitting store. GREAT! That sock had no holes,but the clerk told me that it was a sample from Cascade yarns. I'll try it some time again. I am working on a baby alpaca vest with a diamond inset on the fronts. Lt. ocean green. Lovely color. Interesting to read about the adaptations you are using . Amzing! Both you and the adaptations. Keep those blog entries coming. Rhoda


OK you are way ahead of me. I'm only on clue 2 (but the second sock:-)) Your sock looks fantastic which is helping me not give up. This whole toe up thing is weird. I feel like I'm in a foreign country and I don't speak the language! I have no idea what to expect next:-) I tried to "read" clue 3. Ha, Ha, Ha. Will have to wait and follow it blindly instead. Keep posting. You are this pair of socks only hope. thanks, Kelley

@Rhoda, so good to here from you! I think those samples from Cascade were machine knit, that's my story & I'm sticking to it! Or they were hand knit and stitched up after. Your vest sounds lovely!

@Kelley: Don't give up!!! If I can do it with one hand and plenty of time to knit, you can do it with two hands and limited time to knit. You never know when you might become one handed!!! Knitting from the toe up is different, I agree. This heel is different too, but that's the great thing about the mystery!


I've used the fleegle heel before. I like it alright. I've been trying a few different ones to see which heels fit my family members the best(you wouldn't believe the differences in the shape of footies). I love that peachy color.

I've decided I like the fleegle heel too! There are no holes that showed up and it was super easy to do.
