I love heels!!!

Ok, so yeah this is a bit silly, but I just love sock heels.
You start off with your round tube of fabric.

Then you knit a nice heel flap. (By the way, the below picture is the most accurate as far as color is concerned)

Do some magic short rows and voila you have a triangle!

Pick up all the side bits and you're one piece of fabric again.

And like MAGIC! You've got the better part of a sock!

This sock (and its future mate) are for Sam. I'm using the Lorien colorway from the Unique Sheep LOTR Club. He said he wanted bright yellow socks, and when I saw the Charlie Brown cables I just had to put them together ;)

In other news, I got a package from Germany today :D Extra love to my mail lady for braving the weather to deliver it by hand.


I somehow just managed to be in the right place at the right time and caught an update.

I just keep thinking some kind of awesome green lantern shawl. Also, the yarn came with a really pretty glove pattern, and I might use the cable motif on something else.

Egads - - That's some gorgeous yarn! I really like the Wollemeise [sic]colorways. The socks are adorable and Charlie Brown cables are sweet. You're just rolling along!
