In Bens' post on the progress of his clogs he brought up an interesting subject concerning the weak stitch at the heel where it is intitially joined in the round. I too have had that problem and have always tightened it up a bit at the end and all has been well and good.
However, and I don't remember where I read this, whenever I do a piece in the round someone suggested casting on an extra stitch and ktog when making the join and it has always worked for me in the past. Obviously you can't do that at that point in the clog. So this morning when I got to the join I ktog and immediately did a M1 to recover the stitch. I may hopeful but it seems to be a firmer join.
Hope you guys are having a good weekend!
