Hedera in Progress - a tale of two legs
Behold, there is actually progress on the Hedera Socks for my Sockapalooza pal! I am, in fact, ready to start the heel flaps.
The designer, the very talented Cookie A, did a very nifty thing on this sock. She moved the heel flap in one stitch on one side. The heel is worked on one stitch less than one-half the stitches. That lets the twisted stitches follow down from the twisted ribbing to gracefully frame the gusset. Now that's the kind of detail that I tend to obsess about on my own socks and tweak if the designer didn't do it for me.
This also, not coincidentally, centers the heel flap on a repeat of the twisted stitch. Let's hear it for perfect symmetry!!
This is my first Cookie A project, but I foresee many more in my future.......
