Well, sometimes you just don't like what you are knitting It doesn't matter that you have wanted to knit this for years; no, it just doesn't make you happy on any level any more. The knitted fabric twists as part of the pattern but it looked crooked to me. The heel was a heel flap which looks to me like armor. I lost all patience here and ripped it ALL out to begin again.
I cast on for a toe-up sock and went to town! Now this is a sock to be excited about! I am keeping the patterning from Wasabi Peas in a strip up the side of the sock...and it is nice to have a heel that is comfortable and light and just right (in my opinion)! It is great to have a good knit on the needles again!
What a nice surprise-w e heard the ice cream truck music and ran outside and caught him for a treat!
