Q&A with Barbara62

DeeJays10 asked:
I noticed in the picture that the back top is higher on the leg than most of what I have seen, I like it. Can you tell me if you added extra rows somewhere on the heel? I am taking the Craftsy class but don't remember seeing anywhere that you can extra rows so the back of the sock goes a bit higher on the leg. I am looking to make Peds (that is what I have always called these), not real socks but any I have seen patterns for are a bit low, in my opinion, at the back of the leg. Any advice you can give me would be appreciated. Love these!
Barbara62 answered:
I'm glad you like my socks, thank you (my BFF liked them, too, so they aren't mine any more...). I didn't add any more rows in the back, I only followed the instructions. I completed the heel flap and had barely enough yarn to add some 1 by 1 ribbing.

Thank you for a great idea! I have some bamboo yarn I didn't know what to do with. So, I will make some summer socks! Also, I have been hesitant about trying the toe up sock and this just looks like a more manageable project. Kath

You're welcome! It's kind of addicting to knit toe-up socks, so be prepared to either dive into your stash or buy new yarn :))
