@hafnia Thank you! All downhill from here. I mean, except for the second sock 😂

You've got this! :) Once you've done it once, it gets easier (or so I've heard!)

@Zuph Heels are my favorite part of a sock, it’s like a magic trick, or bending space. Suddenly - a turn into another dimension!

@Zuph Yay! I, just last week, also turned my first heel! These are going to be toe socks :D

Did you do a 1x1 ribbing on the heel?

@intherain Ahhh! That's so awesome, love the pink stripe! Are you doing magic loop? Magic loop definitely still scares me a little bit.

The pattern I'm using called for a slip stitch pattern of alternating purl rows, and slip 1 knit 1 rows.

@Zuph Aah, I see. Yeah I'm doing magic loop. I know myself well enough to know I would succumb to second sock syndrome, so better to do them both at once. I did have to do the heel flaps one at a time.. just let the other one hang.

Magic loop is great.. until you start doing multiple colors, because then the yarn can take up pretty quickly.
