Ever made an after-thought heel? Did you know it is just like knitting a toe where the heel should be. Funny, but true. You knit the heel last, so it doesn't interrupt the flow of your knitting. Here's a nice sock pattern, designed by Laura Linneman that can be downloaded free from Ravelry by clicking here. As a bonus, it also has a link to video demo of the after-thought heel. A sock like this, or any sock really, would look adorable in Heritage Sock Prints. This soft, washable merino-blend yarn is a new addition to the Heritage sock family. You could even use a matching solid to knit the heel and toe. So clever.
