  1. Hey! Thanks for this podcast. I found it because I want the 5" Heavy Metals (!!), but I was pleasantly surprised that you resviewed the No Wrap, No Gap short rows. I just tried it two days ago after doing a few pairs of house socks with the regular wraps and turns and pick ups and got really frustrated picking up the double wraps with my bulky yarn. Anyway, I tried the No wrap method once and got gaps. I did something wrong, but I'm not sure. I'm going to try it again, but I'm also really excited to try the shadow short rows you showed. I prefer increases by lifting from the row below, so this sounds good to me. Thanks again!
