Sock no 6

Opal yarn again. this one is particularly soft to the touch, same mix of 75% wool 25% Nylon. Although a 4ply, it is thicker than the others.

Dutch Heel -this is the only one I have done 'properly'. With the other ones, I had been doing a modified Dutch Heel without realising that what was I was doing!

Looks great Colin. I'd love to know what a *Dutch Heel* is though! What
pattern are you using for your socks?
Last but not least, great idea on the Britsocks (just sent u an email)

Is the picture, in your blog, of that 6-legged person? May we have
the full picture? :PPPP

Krysia, who would like to know what a Dutch heel is, even if she is
being frivolous :P

After you knitted your first pair, I started mine and since then you have knitted your 6th pair and I am on my second sock of my first pair - speedy, i am not. I have no idea what is a dutch heel. Is there a site/book we can get all the info? How do you knit so fast and design and knit sweaters too! You are inspiring me to make my first aran. Which yarn? Which pattern! So many choices... ;)

I'm with the rest. What's the difference between the way it was done before and this method? Where did you find the directions to do it properly? That heel looks like it would be perfect for my feet. I really should try it.

P.S. I wandered over from Socknitters.

Ahhh, Opal Zebra...I love that colorway! And two circs...that's my favorite way to knit socks...and the only way that keeps me from swearing! :)

You're really going at it with those socks of yours now, aren't you? And to think it wasn't long ago that you'd never knitted one!
