I have a lot of projects going on, but I still find a little time here and there for working on my summer sock knitting. Last night, while DH read aloud from Five Acres And Independence, I turned the heel on the first sock of the pair.
I like this short row heel pretty well. It involves knitting both the stitch and the wrap when working the second half of the heel. I still have trouble with holes at the corners of the heel when I resume knitting in the round, but I have learned to simply pick up and extra stitch or two to fill up this gap.
Speaking of picking up stitches, it does look as though I could have increased a few more stitches for the ankle. I could take it out and do this, or I could just leave it on the "no one will notice on a galloping horse" theory. I haven't decided yet, though I'm not feeling particularly patient at the moment. Fortunately, I like a very snug fit on my socks.
