New Heel for Handknit Socks

I am loving this new heel for my handknit socks.  It’s called the Fish Lips Kiss Heel by Sox Therapist and the instructions can be purchased here, on Ravelry.

It’s a strange looking heel before it’s blocked, but it fits my foot wonderfully.  I’ll post more photos once both socks are complete and I can show them on my feet.  I’m so excited to finish these.

First FLK Heel

This is my first time to use Patons Kroy Socks yarn.  I’ve seen some very good reviews on this yarn and I’m hoping it lives up to the hype because I can buy this yarn locally.  I really like the way it’s looking and hope it washes and wears well, too.  The colorway is Blue Striped Ragg, knitted on size 1 needles.

I like knitting my socks simultaneously, to help match them up, however I don’t like them to be TOO matchy-matchy.  I started the second sock so it starts on a different colored stripe than the first sock.  They’ll go together, but not match.  Is there a term for that?  I wish I knew.
