Heel Thyself

The heeling work has begun, but it’s not over yet:

A good look at a bottom gusset.

This gusset is completed, but the work must be repeated for the other sock.   This is where the sock gets wider to accomodate the heel.  In this particular style, the widening happens on the bottom of the foot.  I think it’s easy and it fits very well!

You can see how the gusset fits here.

The next step is to “turn the heel” and then it will be time to start decreasing again to get a nice, snug hug on the leg.  (And yes, that’s Cat Bordhi’s sock book on the floor in the background … already scheming for the next pair of socks, ha ha!)
The stitch pattern is coming along too.

I bet this would make an excellent man’s sock if the yarn-overs (holes) were replaced with M1’s.  I might try it …
