“Targarven” sock knitting


I have now finished the heel.   The photo shows one sock right side up and one upside down.  Notice the redder stripe and heel area.   Even though this is a sock yarn, it didn’t seem strong enough to hold up as long as I like, so I reinforced the heel with a 75% wool, 25% nylon reinforcement yarn by Schoeller Esslinger.

Tomorrow is SewExpo in Puyallup, WA, so will try to find something interesting to show you.

      Thank you – They are also nice because I can throw them in the washer and dryer. I have some socks I wash by hand, but it is so nice to be able to just put these in the laundry as with the other clothes.
