Houston, we have a heel....

Its the Sherman heel- a no wrap short row. Go here to see. Also check the links he referenceses. The technique looks very similar to Nona's Japanese short rows - but without her safety pins.
See, no holes?Of course since its so easy I had to make it a little more complicated..... I put mini rubber bands as markers each time I slipped a stitch, since I could NOT keep track or even read my knitting last night (I have a cold. Makes it hard to focus...)

Really though, its an easy heel to learn and looks good. I'm almost finished the ribbing on the mini socks and will post a pic soon.

I'm taking a break and starting a pair of cuff downs. After that I'll go back and try Charity's tutorial. I love learning new techniques and figureing wich works best for me!

Stay cool!

I am going to attempt this today. Today. No more delaying. I do like the look, the lack of holes. I am worried about my tendancy to knit to tightly but I've finally convinced myself to do it. Wish me luck.
