New Socks!

OK, so I asked for sock pattern/technique ideas, and while I loved your suggestions, I realized that I had gotten the Fish Lips Kiss Heel directions a couple of weeks ago.  There was a thread on Ravelry a while back about great patterns, and this heel technique kept being mentioned.  I figured it was worth a try (and only $1) so I bought it.  At the time though, I was in the middle of the Crazy Rainbow Socks, so I couldn’t use it immediately.  Then yesterday I realized that I could try out this heel on a pair of plain vanilla socks!

I grabbed some self striping yarn (Biscotte & Cie Felix in Brillantine) because I thought that would keep me amused in the stockinette stretches, got some cardboard, a ruler, and pens and started working through the directions for the Fish Lips Kiss Heel.  Since I’m knitting the socks top down, it will be a bit before I actually get to the heel, but I’ve made my foot template (which caused a surprising amount of excitement from Mickael and Caleb), and I’m ready to go.  Here’s a link to my Rav project page if you want more information about the socks.

I do appreciate all the sock suggestions you gave and I’ll definitely keep them in mind for future socks, but I wanted to get started on this and see if it really is all everyone says it is!

I have used the Fish Lips Kiss Heel and it is my favorite short-row heel now.
