I've started the Chevron pattern for self-striping socks and need to do the heel. This is my first experience using a provisional caston. I made the inplace afterthought heel, but had an awful time releasing the provisional caston and picking up the stitches so that I could continue on with the rest of the foot. I ended up frogging the heel, and thankfully, was able to save the loops so I didn't end up having to frog the whole sock! Now my dilema.....do I dare try to do this heel again or try something different for the heel? What would you all suggest???? If I should do a different heelflap/heel what would you suggest??? I'm feeling as though if I should try the same heel again and fail, that I'll want to frog the whole sock. Any advice will be greatly appreciated!
