Trying to learn short-row heels

I finished the Vandyke lace panel socks this weekend so in preparation for Ravelympics 2008, I decided to learn to do short-row heels. I've tried several times in the past, without success, but I found this video tutorial showing Priscilla Wild's no-wrap, no-yarnover technique. It looked easy! It seemed easy while I was doing it! But somehow I ended up with more stitches than I start with. That shouldn't even be possible, because you only ever make a new stitch after knitting two other stitches together. You create one stitch for every one you reduce away--no more, no less. It's like you have a basket of 30 apples. Every time you take one apple out, you put another apple in. No matter how many times you do this, you should theoretically still have thirty apples. Not thirty-two, as I did.

I ripped the whole thing out and will try again tomorrow. Or maybe the next day, because tomorrow I have to concentrate for work a little.

I think I know what you did. When you were going to purl 2 had your yarn in front and made like a yarn over. Ask me how I know. I've now done 3 socks using this method and I love it.

Your payments will not only get to you faster but it will provide you with a history of your earnings for your records.
' The picture is just as worrying for youngsters - by 2010, it's predicted 22 per
cent of girls and 19 per cent of boys between the ages of two
and 15 will be obese, with girls under 11 at particular risk.

Nothing is more motivating than seeing physical proof of results.

Firstly, you must exercise; without proper workout, you can bid goodbye to your dream of having a
flat tummy. What you should do is to focus or target a particular group of
muscle for once or even twice a week. Avoid burnout by mixing up your exercises so
that you will stay interested in doing them.
