In search of a heel

Socks are flying over here. Socks are super quick and the perfect project. Stripey socks, heavy socks, light socks,business casual socks. Yesterday I started another pair while the asparagus and tooth paste socks will have to wait. I have plans for socks for friends and co-workers, people who help me a lot right now without even knowing it, they deserve socks.

These stripey ones are pretty but I did an afterthought heel in order to keep the stripes and an afterthought heel doesn’t really work for me. I’m not sure why but they just don’t fit very well. I need to find another type of heel but I’m not really sure where to start looking. Interesting problem, it’s going to be fun solving it.

Pattern: my own, I cast on 48 stitches and knit just as far as a student theater performance took me, and then knit for the foot till about an inch and a half less than my foot and then I did an afterthought heel. Yarn: Aurora from Viking of Norway, color 675. It pleases me to no end that they look alike.
