I decided to use the Eye of Partridge stitch and a garter stitch selvedge for the heel of this sock. The very first “real” sock I ever made had a heel like this and it was very attractive. I never finished that pair of socks because there were size and yarn issues … so it’s nice to have a wearable pair with this design! I think it looks nice with the lace too.
I’ve finished the gusset-munch on both socks, so all that’s left is the slide to the toes! My current estimate is 1.5 more iterations of the decorative pattern.
I got the yarn for Christmas knitting … well, they neglected to send two of the balls I ordered! First time they’ve messed up. I’ll call tomorrow. I’m going to start on the sleeves with that project. More on that later!
