As The Heel Turns

In the continuing saga of as the heel turns... Okay, I am not a clever writer, so I will fail miserably if I don't just get down to what this post is about. I have finally turned a heel on the Sasquatch size 13 boot socks. (Could my arm look any more white?) I have large hands for a woman, so that gives you some perspective on just how large this sock is.When I started this project, I searched for a good, simple pattern for a sock this large, without any success. So, I have been improvising as I go along, using gauge to determine how many stitches to cast on and simply doing the heel flap, turn and gusset that I like best. I didn't realize that I knew how to knit a sock without a pattern until I just started doing it.

I am taking meticulous notes in hopes that the 2nd sock will be identical. (That would be a first for me!) If I am completely satisfied with how they turn out then I may post my notes so that others who are unfortunate enough to be acquainted with Sasquatch will be able to make him some socks too. Tune back in to the same channel for the next episode!


  1. I have 'wing-knitting' a sweater for my godson this week. (Raglan, top down) I loved it until I realized both sleeves should match, and had to go back to making notes!
    Ah well, these days most things I knit wind up a pattern, so the notes will come in handy!

  2. Taking notes is a great step towards your goal! So many times I have forgotten to take some notes when working on the first sock or sleeve. I also like to post them on Ravelry so I can save someone else the time- no need for two knitters to go through the same trial and error process.


Welcome to my crafty little world!
