I like it! It's the best!

(Apologies for putting Nacho Libre quotes in every post.)

Here's a picture of my sock:
Funky socks are back again
(I have another one to match.)

Check out the funky heel! It has no flap, but uses a gusset and short row method to get bigger and turn. I love this heel. I don't know how durable it will be, but it's neat, a fast fast knit, and very comfortable. Well, actually it's a little short:
Close up of the heel

And I'm thinking I could use a few of Grumperina's sock tricks for making it bigger - I think what she does is knits a little extra stockinette before starting the next part of the sock.

And one of Fee. I turned the camera sound off and she seems to put up with it better.

Happy Tuesday.

Sheila - THANKS! Wow, I'm sorry I couldn't get it together fast enough to make it to the store. I'll be there Thursday for sure! :)

Stephanie - There's a free pattern that uses it here -

(I didn't do the eye of partridge, and I expanded from 64 stitches to 88.)

and a paying one available as basic toe-up sock pattern from Lisa Knits - http://www.lisaknits.com
