I did the first one on "Mira". It was ok but I needed to pull the yarn a little tighter at the yarn overs I think. I will probably frog this heel and re-knit it so that the holes are smaller. I also want to add just a little length to the foot anyways. So - to the pond it goes.
On the "Winter Solstice" socks I think I did a better job. The holes are much smaller and the fabric is more dense. I like this method. It sure beats picking up those stinkin' wraps. It sure makes me feel old when I can't see them to pick them up!
So, have I been living in the dark ages by knitting my short row heels with wraps or something??
