I’m pleased with it, so the second one is on the needles, but just barely.
(The pattern will show up at The Loopy Ewe eventually, by the way. Thanks for asking!)
Bellamoden asked in the comments:
How do you make some heel flaps look wedge shaped, and others look more squared, more heel-flap-y?
I think it’s a matter of different patterns for different heels. My slip-stitch heel pattern yields the squared heel flap, while my gusset heel pattern makes the wedge-shaped heel.
I’m curious: what made it difficult to find a foot-mannequin the “right size?”
All the female mannequin legs/feet I’ve seen thus far are identical — with the standing on tippy-toe arched foot. That foot is smaller and narrower than my size medium sock. I guess most of these body parts come from the same manufacturer. I’m still in awe of Dani and how she managed to find a foot that fits my socks exactly.
And Barbara-Kay commented:
That photo of Lucy with the foot model might seem strange to a non-knitter. What about a lol-cat caption?
Excellent idea. Let’s have a caption contest! Look at the photo of Lucy with the foot model:
Now come up with a good LOLCats caption and leave it in the comments for today’s post. I’ll pick a winner or two or three, depending on how many entries I get, and the winners will receive something good!
Do it by 3:00pm EDT tomorrow (July 1) to be eligible to win.
