Hey men! Well I've become addicted to knitting babysocks. They're so damn cute I can't stop! (check out the first pair at kilgoretrout.wordpress.com/test) My problem comes in when I turn the heel. Like many sock knitters, I end up with a series of holes going up the gusset as I "turn" the heel. I've tried knitting this tighter in that area, and asked many knitters, but they answer I get is the same: "I have that problem too, not sure what to do, just sew up the holes at the end". Yes yes, sew up the holes, that's what I'm doing. It only takes a few minutes and the finished product looks presentable, but theres GOT to be a way to knit a heel without these holes! any ideas?
keep in mind I'm knitting socks with a "turning heel", not the kind where you knit the gusset and then "pick up stiches" to turn the heel. know what I mean?
