I’ve been very good about dividing my knitting time between the two projects that have to be completed this month: the Blogville Pride Month Rainbow socks and the My Hope shawl. I’m sorry to say Arachne hasn’t had a stitch knit but I will get back to it once these two are done.
I’m really pleased with how the rainbow socks are coming along. The rainbow is vibrant. I’ve reached the point where I have to decide what I want to do about the heel. These socks are for me so in the grand scheme of things I’ll be happy with them if they fit. That being said my preferred heel is a heel flap and we all are well aware that a heel flap monkeys up the stripes. I could do an afterthought heel using the blue/gray sections of yarn to complete it. I might have to cut out a section of rainbow to accomplish it but if I wait until both socks are done it wouldn’t matter. Of course I could just knit a heel flap and not worry about the striping on the foot. It will live inside a shoe anyway.
I didn’t give any consideration to being able to match the first and second sock so spending a lot of time considering what to do about the heel seems like wasted energy. What would you do?
