A friend of mine recently undertook her first sock project and posed the simple question, "how do I do this?".
I am not a sock expert, but I have worked a few pairs in my time, each using a different technique. Of the techniques that I've used, the sweet tomato heel is my absolute favorite method. It has such a clean finish and is pretty simple to execute. Socks can be intimidating [I frogged my first pair], but with this video in your arsenal, they are completely doable.
