Q&A with QuiltMoxie

Jettquilts asked:
You have been very busy! I love all three of your projects added. If you like the sock as much as you do, it really needs its twin! Lovely knitting!
QuiltMoxie answered:
Hello Jettquilts, Thanks for your kind feedback. You are right, the sock needs its twin ! I am just so delighted with it this one and not yet convinced that its twin will be identical. Perhaps, this will be holiday knitting. We'll see, Cheers, Ariana

You cant let such a fab sock be a sock orphan. It has to have a friend. Xxx
QuiltMoxie answered:
Hello Andyteddi1276226, Good point ! Lucy's double sole Gemini sock pattern is lots of fun and produces a confy sock. My track record so far, when it comes to knitting socks one at a time is that it takes me knitting 3 socks to get one pair and that is why I prefer knitting two socks at the same time. Not sure if I am up to knitting two more socks for my sock orphan., when I can cast on and do 2 socks at the same time and put a frame on little sock orphan instead. Still deciding, Ariana
anitahoen1615836 asked:
I love this sock. Did you combine a gusset heel with a shortrow heel?
QuiltMoxie answered:
Hi Anitahoen1615836, You are correct. This is a hybrid heel which adds a short row heel before picking up the gusset stitches. The fit is very nice because you can customize the depth of your heel.
