Stunningly beautiful short row heel!

I confess that I have not ever been happy with short row heels on socks. I love the concept but the execution left a lot to be desired. Well, it left a row of tiny holes going up the heel no matter how carefully I wrapped.

Thanks to my podcast interview of Cookie A. and reading through her book, Sock Innovation, I have been intrigued by her mathematical mind. I suspected that her designs would be things of analytical beauty. Thanks to the Sock Innovation KAL, I’m happily exploring Cookie’s sock patterns.

I finished the short-row heel on my Lindsay Sock and it is absolutely fantastic!!! So easy! I am back to loving this heel style. No issues of picking up heel flap stitches and shaping a gusset.

Isn’t it a lovely thing? <
