We have heels!

Last night I completed both heels in record time - 2 hours each - perhaps it's because they are a smaller sized sock and perhaps it's because I finally get the construction of them.

There's four steps in the Crazy Toes and Heels method:
1...Short row down
2...Turn the heel
3...Short row up
4...Meld gusset stitches with the heel stitches.

They fit well and it's good to be on the home stretch. The cuffs will probably be plain ribbing, maybe 4 knit and 2 purl??

The socks are looking great! How are the other ones going? Did you have to hide them from yourself so you could knit these ones?
Who knows you may have them done by Sunday at this rate. :)

Thank you!
The other socks are going well - I have stopped the yellow ones and will pick them up again when I have the toe increases finished on these new ones.

Hi from Austria! Now, that was a truly speedy knit, and the socks look so great already - such cheerful colors! Looking forward to seeing them all finished!
