A note about the heel: Short rows were not wrapped and turned but just plain turned according to directions here (link found via The Knit Cycle, a lovely blog about yarn and bikes to which I am quite grateful for introducing me to this concept; my short-row heels don’t have a sloppy side anymore!).
A note about yarn usage: I had plenty of yarn left and could have done taller socks if I’d done it the proper way and worked toe-up to eke out every last inch. Lately I feel like life is too short for toe-up socks. I can slog through a long leg if I know once I reach the heel there is nothing but excitement for the rest of the knitting – the flap! the turn! the gusset! the toe! or at least 2 of those things depending on the type of heel! – but getting past all the fun stuff and facing the loooooooong leg is likely to lead to ankle socks in my experience.
A note about the rainbows: You guys, I’m not typically into rainbow colored stuff. Or bright stuff. Or, like, I own a lot of black and gray and denim blue, OK? But these socks are best. I got the yarn in a trade and it was so not a difficult trade offer to accept. And now I get to put the yarn in my blanket so my blanket will be best. And I am super excited about these rainbows is what I am saying.
Also? They match my new (oh, yes, that’s a) LeCreuset grill pan (that I got at 40% off for serious)!
(P.S. I am having a yard sale here because I don’t really have a yard. Maybe you need some stuff? I have some stuff. Check it out if you like stuff.)
