Instead I have a question: Is there a stitch I can use on the bottom of the sock to make it thicker without having to worry that it will change my gauge too much? (For example, the heel on the jaywalker sock seems thicker - it's a (sl 1, k1) to the end. Next row purl. Next rowl (sl 1, k1). Could I continue this down the whole bottom of the sock or will it not work? Ladies?
The EZ baby sweater pattern is from "Elizabeth Zimmermann's Knitters' Almanac" - a good knitters book - and fun to read even if you aren't going to knit anything from it. She describes her narrative directions for patterns as, "Pithy directions for . . . " Reading her book is as cozy as knitting wooly socks, of which she also has a pattern. Oh, and by the way, I think that EZ is very misleading. It does not mean EASY - as I will soon find out when I try her baby sweater. But I will not be deterred.
