Wanted to give Toe-Up another chance and wanted to use as much as possible from my Fabel leftovers.

This time, I work the “Bumerang” version of short rows, i.e. I pulled the stitch back to get the “Doppelmasche”. Worked quite well, but I had to frog once as I miscounted and did not place the heel in the centre. To be on the save side, these will probably only be sneakers, no full sized leg.

Hm. Still don’t like the fit of this heel, a little too bulky - same is for the bind-off, a little on the loose side. Next toe-up might be done with a boomerang-heel.
