finally I got it!

Yes, I now got it, the silly boomerang heel and now I can tell that it really isn´t that bad. (I knew
from the beginning that this one is easier than the one with godet and hoody) my very first knitted sock heelAs I could neither work with the instructions from my book nor take the chance to follow the offers from Tammina and Mandy to show me this heel - both work in Berlin fulltime there was no possibility to go on with the heel earlier. Then, yesterday Tina posted a link to an URL at viruscreativus and I was astonished. The description was much better to imagine and I immediately understood what was meant. This page describes much better how the things to do need to look like. About the left double stitches and the right ones and so on. The next hours I was busy to knit the first half of the heel. Now I know what was meant by knitting "shorter rows with double stitches" - this was a contradiction for me so far. Just cast double stitches at the end of a row but knit the next row without this double stich. You get a trapezoid starting with the broad side, when finished. But after this, the description at the internet failed too and the instruction from my book was absolutely discrepant in its content. Thank God that Ina Elena had already knitted this slightly new kind of heel yet and she joined Skype to explain it to me. She described what to do in each row and was able to see me working on the webcam and got feedback from me. A kind of online - tutorial that was. After some rows it occured to me how the system was and I was able to go on by myself. I choose to follow the instruction from the book saying that after the first
half all double sitches need to be casted on as one in this 2 rows which are full rounds. Wow, the finished heel looks similiar to the socks from supermarket. Incredible! Of course I´m going to show you this improvement and took a photo immediately. After this I showed my result to Tina, Elena and my parents via Skype webcam. Man, I am proud that this process went into my brain now, I still can´t believe it is true. I bet I am going to become a sockaholic just like some of the knitting bloggers I read. Thanks to Tina, Elena and my parents for their help.
