I basically want to whine because I've finally come across something in knitting that I don't like to do - wrap and turn. I'm working on the Frilly Tops socks in Cute Kits for Baby Feet. All the socks in this book have W&T, except for the baby booties, which are knit flat (and turned out adorable!). http://www.knitpicks.com/books/Cute_...t__D31127.html
I've knit several pairs of socks over the years, but this is the first pattern I've come across that has wrap and turn. I don't like W&T. I don't like the process, I don't like the way it feels, I don't like keeping up with the wraps and then having to 'hide' them, but most of all I don't like how it looks.
So, what can I do different and still get similar results? Can I do the short row without doing the W&T? Or is there a better method for a baby sock? I'm only talking about a few stitches and a few rows here, because this is a newborn size sock.
