Okay, which is easier? Sock with gusset or short row?
Deciding which video to order. Just wondering everyone's preference when it comes to sock knitting.

OTN: Too much stuff that isn't getting finished before something else is started......

I'm a die-hard heel flap knitter.

Take a look at Silver's Sock Class before you order a video though! It's a fab might be able to spend your video $$ on sock yarn instead

With sock knitting it's really all about how you like the fit... some don't care for the way a short way feels or wears on their foot... while others don't care for the heel flap and gusset... I find the short heel fits my heel well so that is usually what I use... I also think it goes faster
