What do all
those HEELS look like?
Hill's WONDERFUL resource Heels
by Number (currently available to Socknitter's List members
only), I have recreated each of the common heels using Brown Sheep's
Lamb's Pride Worsted. If I had been doing an actual sock it would
have been 40 stitches around...what I am showing in the pictures
is the last ten rows of the heel flap (orange) with a garter stitch
edge...and then, the actual heel turning in yellow. To relate
it to my picture of the Anatomy
of a Sock, it is the portion shown in orange and dark green...the
bottom half of the heel flap and the (yellow) part of the sock
that is under your heel. Again...the orange part of the pictures
is going UP toward the cuff, while the yellow is under your heel.
At the bottom
of the page is Nancy Bush's Band Heel with no gusset.
an afternoon to make and it is a great little exercise to familiarize
yourself with the various turning formulas and how each one fits
YOUR foot :-)
