This is an update on my socks, progressing slowly. This is knit with my own handspun using the CD spindle. I really like this yarn! It's very nice to work with, hasn't been splitting for me and the yarn is quite consistent throughout, which is important.
I have turned the heel. These are knit from the toe up, so I did a small gusset in preparation to turning the heel. I like the slip-stitch heel flap, so that is what I did -- in reverse. It makes a nice heel. You can only tell if you look carefully at the direction of the 'Vs' of the stitches to know the direction it was knit.
Now, on to the boring part of the leg!
