This is a terrible picture, but I’m too tired to try and take a better one. It will just have to do.
To recap, these are socks knit toe-up with one strand of Araucania Ranco Solid (green) and Koigu KPPPM (blue). I finally mastered Judy’s Magic Cast On for these, which pleases me. (Both the cast-on, and the mastering of it.)
My only modification is, after I finish turning the heel, I work 20 rounds of plain stockinette at the back of the foot. This completes the “mock heel flap” illusion. It also helps the sock stay on better, since it feels to me like if you have ribbing that far down on your heel, you walk out of your socks more easily.
