I'm knitting a pair of socks for my son, he requested shorty (crew for the correct teenage verbage) socks, and I thought this http://www.members.shaw.ca/lisaknits/sockettes.html
pattern would work out fine, with a few extra rows for foot length. I did the ole gauge x ankle = CO, and thought all was cool.
Granted I'm working with Super Soft 100% Premium Acrylic, on 2.25 mm and all seemed to be going ok.
.....Then I get the bright idea :thinking: to re-enforce
So I added another thread of Acrylic (Super Soft different color) at the Top of the Heel flap. Knitted for thirty rows with both strings, Turned the Heel...... to find out.....
That the thing will STAND UP by itself!
Poor kid would have his foot rubbed raw with this monstracity.
Please do not, I repeat Do Not try this at home.
Frog's the Word :XX:
