My First Monster Sock And Afterthought Heel Is Making Me…

Feel determined. So far, I’ve frogged the heel once and, I venture to say I will rip it, rip it at least one more time. I’m determined though. I’m putting it aside for a second and come back with a fresh eye and rested hands. I do love this monster sock. It’s made up of leftover yarn from all the socks I’ve knit this year.

It started out fine.

The sock is done. Now for the heel.

I picked up the stitches on either side of the waste yarn.

The gap is waiting for the heel. 

There’s a little bit of Mother, Joanie, Bob and Rhinebeck in this sock. Ann, from my knitting group said I should call it a memory sock. I like that idea.
