You could sew them up with sewing cotton if you had to, but really you're better off either accepting that that's what happens with short rows, or figuring out how to do them better! It's all about how you wrap the stitch and then later on how you knit the wraps. First try doing them all tighter than you usually do. If that doesn't help, Google for ways to fix this: Misocrafty's blog has a post on how to hole-free short rows. Also Sockknitters' forum is full of people describing what they do to fix short row holes.
thank you! thought that i was doing something wrong, :pout: iīm trying again, i think the more i knit this heel, the better is coming!! :cheering:
