I wish I'd done an afterthought heel (even though I don't know how to do one =) but I'm not too mad about how the stripes joined up after I picked up the heel flap stitches. If I were more persnickety, I would have cut the yarn and restarted the striping sequence at that point. But I just wanted to keep knitting! I always struggle with dividing the stitches evenly for Magic Loop after picking up the gusset stitches. Does anyone have any hints?
A geek is "a person who is single-minded or accomplished in scientific or technical pursuits"; "a person with an unusual or odd personality".
I'm a programmer, but I consider needlework a very "technical" pursuit.
