Worth the headache

Once I got started back in on them, I fell in love with the BroadRipple Hybrids all over again. Until I got to the heel. You remember the heel - the one that makes these "hybrids" because it was lifted wholesale from the Six Sox KAL "Sixth Sense" pattern?

I knit on that second heel all night last night. That's because it was knit twice. For some reason in my notes, I had it on 16+16 stitches, but the FINISHED sock is 18+18. And yes, those four stitches matter *sigh*.

Again with the "why I should NEVER knit one sock, then the other". If I'd have done my usual cuff/cuff, leg/leg, heel/heel, foot/foot, toe/toe gig, I would not have made such a stupid mistake and these socks would probably be DONE long ago. Having almost succumbed to second sock syndrome on the Snake Skin Scales socks a while back (again from knitting one at a time) and now this, I am totally convinced that my usual method is the way to go for me.

now that's an excellent idea about how to knit socks nad not get bored with the second sock. I am succumbing to the SSS more and more these days :sigh:
