Laburnum is growing

She's growing as would an infant.....slowly...but surely....by the fraction of inches....

Very pretty! That's a good-looking heel, a lot of folks apparently get holes in the corners of their short-row heels--at least the first time. I've been afraid to try them because of that, but yours look great!

My secret to short-rows:

Instead of k3tog and p3tog tbl, I do the tbl on the knit stitch. Looks much nicer to me.

Go ahead. Tug on the yarn in the "corner" when you start knitting in the round again.

I'm never doing another heel flap again. EVER.
