So let's get right down to it, shall we?
I used Hazel Knits Artisan Sock in Strawberry Lemonade and US0/2mm needle. -- I seriously LOVE this colour, and I found it so hard to capture. So I'm really hoping you have a chance to see this yarn in person and maybe grab a skein, it's so lovely!
This pattern is really well written, and very easy to follow. I absolutely LOVE the x&o detail!! It was also a quick one to knit up! The cable work broke up the stockinette just perfectly, and before I knew it, it was heel time!
Usually I tend to pick toe up sock patterns, because I like to use up all the yarn. But that really makes for incredibly long socks. These are still toe up, BUT i decided to go for a shorter sock. It's still perfect. .... AND I have some leftovers for any little doodad.
This was the first time I've ever knit a fish lips kiss heel. Goodness do I ever feel super clever! haha. The instructions for the fish lips heel are very detailed, and just fantastic. Grab them here.
Overall, I love these socks! Now I'd better hurry and cast on a new pair of socks!
What are your favorite heels to work? Yarns? Come chat! tea's on. xo
