- Interesting 'closing the gap' technique Review by Mac
I just finished using this technique with small gauge DPNs and I was not very impressed with the results. I get better results by simply picking up a stitch on either side of the gusset gap and then knitting those two stitches together on the next round. Much easier with better results.
But all is not lost!! She gives a veritable GEM of a technique with regards to tightening up the line of picked-up stitches along the heel flap by knitting into the back of those pick-ups (not the slips) on the first 'return to the round'. Worked A-Mazingly well!!

- Interesting technique Review by Mac
Very interesting and I'm looking forward to trying it out. It gave a good explanation of why the gaps occur at the gusset, and it did serve to minimize the gap, but it definitely did not eliminate it, as the gap was still visible on her sample sock. But this may have been partially due to the large gauge she was using to enhance visibility. I'll be interested to see how it works on a smaller scale...
