    Two through the heels.

    I'm playing yarn chicken with the red and white so I decided to do TAAT - on separate needles.

      TAAT on separate needles is my method of choice, I make mine toe up. Very seldom an issue with yarn chicken with toe up.

      These are coming along so cute! knitter131 that's my preferred method too. I will very occasionally do a cuff down or TAAT on a single needle, but this is one rut I kinda don't mind being in cuz it works for me. 😁

    Plan B: I decided to knit the slippers KnitsWithHorses linked to instead of the socks I linked to in the other thread. I can see why she loves this pattern. I'm going to be looking for a wool cotton blend to make a pair for my husband for Christmas.

        I would be worried that fishing line would cut the yarn. What type of fiber is the yarn? I can't understand why the cotton thread isn't holding. Is it actually breaking? I think I would try regular, all purpose thread. It is polyester. I would also use two strands.

        ETA: Just reread that you said cotton 4 ply. I guess you mean yarn. Did you knot the ends or weave them in? I could see where weaving might cause it to wiggle loose.

        lovestostitch, apologies for getting off track here and don't want to take over your thread. I did weave the ends so maybe will try once more with knots and the cotton and see what happens. Thank you!! πŸ˜€

        I love it, what type of heel did you knit?

        FreedomLover, this one is an E of P heel flap. I was following the Yarn Harlot's tutorial for a good vanilla sock in any size on her Patreon page. Recently I've been loving the garter stitch Fish Lips Kiss heel for socks.
