I knitted like crazy to finish the second part of the foot for my Cat Bordhi sock class on Sunday. I chose the lace increase or foot expansion like she called it. It was a total disaster, not only did I place my lace increases in the wrong place but the fabric bunches up as I increase. When trying on my sock I can see that I actually don't need any increases at all if I want the sock to fit snug. So I think I am going to rip it and continue the foot without any increases and turn the heel like I always do with a short row heel which is really easy. I just don't see the point on complicating myself when the short row heel worked so well for me in the past and it is so easy. I do want to try Cat's Spring Thaw Sock published in Knitter's in the Summer 2008 issue (white socks on the bottom left). I haven't completely given up on her techniques, quite the contrary, I have gotten more interested on them and I am very likely to buy her book and try more things from it. It just seems like these lace increases are too open for my foot and I don't need as many stitches in that area as other people might. I am not sure I will go to the class tomorrow as it makes no sense for me to continue knitting on this disaster sock, all I want to do is rip it and that will give me no time to get the foot ready for tomorrow. We will see.
