Houston, We Have A Short Row Heel!!!

I can NOT thank Mt.Mom enough for putting up these videos of how to do Short Row Heels.

Short Row Heels with YO, Part 1

Short Row Heels with YO, Part 2

Short Row Heels with YO, Part 3

For over a year (!!!!!!!!!!) I've been trying to learn how to do Short Row Heels (SRH)with the 'wrap & turn' method. It sucks. Or it just sucks when I'm trying to learn how to do it. I found Mt.Mom's videos showing how to do SRH's with YO's instead of wraps. Thought I'd give THAT a try. Plus, she took the time to do 3 video's showing how to start, do the heel, THEN get the last stitches BACK on the instep needle! This is HUGE people.

LOOK!!!





EKKKKKKK!!! SQUUUEEEEEEEE!!! A COMPLETED HEEL!!!

I bow down at Mt.Mom's feet. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Heavens, no bowing, please! :)
I'm just a knitter, like you. Well, a knitter with a Teen-Genius ds who knows a bit about video editing software.

I'm *so* glad the videos were helpful to you, especially after such a struggle! Your words are very kind, and I surely do appreciate them.

Thanks for posting the links! I enjoy making the videos, and when I hear of people learning from them it really is heartwarming. This style of heel -- there are so many -- comes from Priscilla Gibson-Roberts' book, Simple Socks: Plain and Fancy.
