short row heel holes...
Ok...

Is it just me, or does everyone get little holes in wrapped short row heel socks?

I know how to avoid it when you are picking up stitches on the heel flap, but with the short row, I always end up with that gap..more on one side than the other...but a gap none-the-less....

Any tips?

I think we got the wrong holes...

The holes I am talking about are the gaps created when you are moving from the body of the sock to the heel, and vs versa. The connection points from which you start and finish the heel itself.

Does that make sense?

That was an awesome tutorial though...thanks!

I got that too when I tried short rows. My teacher told me to think of it as a little bit of lace in the design. *GRRRRRR* I didn't like it either so I just gave up short rows as a bad business. I'm going to have to figure them out sooner or later, I hear they are really helpful in knitting garments, but they were frustrating and I didn't like the holes either!!

Thanks for this post! I just got back to my first sock (had to take a short break for baby shower items) and got to this point myself last night. I had finished the heel and was joining back in the round to do the rest of the sock (I am knitting on 2 circs, toe up) and TOTALLY have a huge hole on one side I figured I would just kinda stitch it up.

Chris, thanks for posting that link. It seems a little confusing to me right now, but I'll give it a shot when I work on the second sock - it will probably make more sense if I actually "do it" while knitting than trying to read about it here at work!

Did you make sure you slipped those first stitches?

I did slip my stitches and still ended up with the hole But since it is the furthest I have made it trying socks, I am determined to just keep going, and hope I can correct it on sock #2
