My red socks, for the Red Sock KAL, are off the needles and on my feet!
Yarn: Opal Rainforest Ladybug
Needles: 2.5mm bamboo DPNs
Pattern: My standard sock pattern. In this case, I ribbed for 20 rounds, then knitted stocking stitch for a futher 65 before commencing the heel flap. I used a slip-stitch heel flap.
I had planned to knit a rib/baby cables combination on the leg, but it just didn't look right. So after frogging, I went for speed over fancy LOL.
This time I did something a little different when picking up the heel flap edge stitches. I came across this post/technique on Grumperina's blog the other day and decided I'd try it for myself. It takes a little longer, IMO, to do it this way, but it does give a very smooth result.

I might actually get to wear them this weekend, now that the unseasonably HOT (37c aka 99f in OCTOBER for goodness sake!) weather seems to have abated.
Ooh, I have some of this yarn, and since your's turned out so great, I think this will be the next ball to be started :-)By Sandra, on 17 October, 2006
