Funky Heel

I think this heel is called a Forethought Afterthought heel. It is kind of funky and I am not sure if I like it. I wanted the socks to be a little on the short side so I did not knit them very long. The heel seems kind of short and is making the sock look to me about 1/2" shorter than I want it to be.

I really don't want to rip and I can't try the socks on, my feet are way to big for them, so I think I am going just going to follow the pattern and see what happens.

I like that this heel keeps the stripe pattern going, it creates a bulls eye pattern around the heel and I really like the look of it.

Maybe the sock is not small, maybe I just have big hands. Is it me or do your hear the fickle knitting goddess busting a gut right now?

Occasionally (when he remembers), Paul waters the ceder trees in the back yard. When he does he forgets to turn the water off. This results in flooding. Our back lawn is about 6"of top soil laid right onto the clay that the area is known for. So the top soil absorbs what it can and the rest sits on top or runs off down the retaining wall to the driveway.

When this occurs it floods the rock pit that kids play in. Often (when he remembers) Paul will drain the rock pit when this happens. This time he decided to leave it and let the kids play in their 'swimming hole'. They are having a great time.

We are headed out camping this weekend look for a post on Sunday evening.

I like the socks. They're very pretty. If they don't fit you could give them to me for Christmas.
