I decided to take the easy route and just skip the stripe that had had the knot in it, and now I have a perfect short-row heel. I used this tutorial and plowed through it until it was done. It seems that no matter what kind of heel I’m doing, it’s my least favorite part of the sock. But now I’m past that and on to the leg! It will be stockinette most of the way up, with some k2 p2 ribbing for the last few inches.

Tonight there will be no knitting; I will be attending my company’s Winterholiday Party at La Bergerie in Alexandria. I have been told that the food there is magnificent, and I’m looking forward to it! The only thing I’m not looking forward to is the hour-plus drive it will take to get there.

And tomorrow, I’ll get back to my mom’s gloves. We’ve scheduled a family Chanukah get-together for December 28th, so that is my deadline to have the pair finished.

    I always found the start of the gusset decreases to be my least favourite part of a sock.

    It’s funny how everyone has their likes and dislikes for certain parts of a sock.

      My favorite part of a top-down sock is the part just after the ribbing, when the leg pattern (if there is one) begins. It’s the relief of being done with the ribbing, combined with the still-newness of the project!
