...that this is the same color as my previous sock pix, okay?
(That's what you get for taking camera-phone pictures inside!)
This is the new and improved pattern, without the gigantic invisible problems from the last version. I had an essay to read (for work), so I took a longer lunch than usual and read and knit at the same time, and have partly turned the heel. It's toe-up, and I'd usually do a short-row heel, but I'm trying a modified Cat Bordhi-style toe-up heel from New Pathways for Sock Knitters. I say modified because I put my increases in the usual place, and because I don't have the book with me so I'm making up my own numbers, not following a master pattern. I can always revert to a short-row heel, but it seems to be working so far.
