Feels like forever, but it has only been days. I'm referring to my blog post frequency not a country western song. It is time to re surface, come up for air. Days passed where I saw no further than my mailbox. I've gotten my dyeing fix. The weather cleared, the skeins have dried. Now to photograph and post. If today goes as planned, I'll have all the new sock yarn colors up online.
My toe up socks... I need some help here. My instep is very high. This hasn't been an issue with most patterns. Jaywalker was an exception, I had to rip them out and admit that they will not ever stretch enough to go over my heel. I've just encountered the same problem with my toe up socks. For the past week, the dandelion sock has been sitting, waiting, for me to decide what to do. After turning the heel, and trying it on, I have ripped it back to the pre-heel stage. It was too tight. The fabric was stretched to the limit over my instep. The foot is fine and plenty long. I don't want the foot any wider. Any ideas?
I forgot to mention the pattern. I was using Wendy's gusset toe up pattern. It is very easy to follow. I wonder if I should increase the gusset stitches..?
