A Sock Surgeon’s Afterthought Heel Technique

October 27, 2012 in Knitting socks

Working an afterthought heel into a tube sock is a great way to handle self-patterning or self-striping yarns, where you don’t want to disturb the established pattern by changing the stitch count over the heel shaping. It’s also ideal if you need something really simple to knit (a plain sock with no shaping until the toe) and would rather worry about the heel business afterward! This tutorial shows how to work an afterthought heel by snipping a stitch and unraveling a hole for the heel (no waste yarn). It’s not as scary as it sounds! Companion PDF with a little bit of math help can be found here, if verbal instructions are more your thing. www.ravelry.com

Introduction to Yarn Sizes

October 16, 2012 in Crochet flowers

Introduction to Yarn Sizes – as part of the expert series by GeoBeats. Yarn guage is very important to get the right size for a pattern, to make sure that something fits you well, and to make sure that you are pairing the right yarn with the right project. So, for thinner yarns: Thinner yarns, which are most likely between 26 and 30 stitches to four inches, and that is how we figure out gauge. Figuring out guage is making a four inch by four inch swatch, and measuring how many stitches fit inside those four inches. So something that gives you 26 to 30 stitches to the inch, which would be something looking like this very thin, you would use this for socks, for shawls, for finer-knit projects. You would not want to make a sweater out of something this fine, it would take you forever. So this is better for socks, shawls, smaller projects, and things that would really show off lace. So for a shawl, while it is a larger project, you would have lots of lacey holes and sort of effects in it that would show up really well in a thinner yarn. If you are moving towards yarn that requires anywhere from a size 7 to a size 9 needle, you would look for something like this. These would be good for mittens, for hats, and really for sweaters, skirts, things that are larger projects. Probably a blanket. Because this is sort of your middling weight, a lot of yarn comes in this weight. It is the worsted weight, and that is what you are going to see a lot of. A little bit larger than that
