I even like my fugly socks. They're warm and comfy. That's what sox is for.
I'm doing the heel stitch (*sl 1, k1*) on short row heels and I think I like the way it's working out. My Felici Sport Macaroon yarn is sooooo soft and nice, too bad I've promised them to someone else.

Cheating is an option. . . . Cheaters never win and winners never cheat, but smart knitters who want to retain an iota of sanity do, cheerfully. ~~Kory Stamper
