Speaking of Pointy

TTS 2 foot You thought the other toe was pointy?

Well, I don't know what happened to this one, but it seems pointer to me.

I swear I worked it the same, increasing every other row, but it doesn't look the same.

Although, when I was working the other toe, I did think I fell off somehow, but then it worked out even in the end, so I didn't try to find the error. Maybe I imagined it.

As you can see, I'm in the midst of working the short row heel. Told you this one would fly along. A three-day weekend helped as well.

In case you're wondering, when I'm working short rows, I like to put a stitch marker after each wrapped stitch to keep track of where I am. That way I don't have to struggle to identify them visually. I can just count markers.

Of course, this makes things a bit funky when I working back out. I remove the marker for the stitch I work, but keep it in place for the next stitch in line with second wrap. Hey, it works for me.

Ok, I think that's enough of a knitting break for now, back to it. I don't like to let short rows sit for too long, as there is still the potential for loosing my place.

Hope you've had a lovely long weekend—if you're in the States.
