FO: Fizz Socks

Pattern: Fizz Socks of my own imagining
Yarn: Knit Picks Felici in Fizz
Needle: US #1 (2.25 mm) Addi Turbo circular needles
Notes and Mods: This is my first pair of afterthought heel socks and I'm not sure if I like them or not. The afterthought heels were easy to knit but I don't like the messy stitches where the corners of the heels meet. These are a gift for my sister for Christmas so I can't even tell you how the fit of the afterthought heels compares to my regular heel flap and gusset construction fit.

  1. Hi Erin,

    I don't like those messy stitches, either - so I pick up 2 extra stitches in each corner and criss-cross them (just like when I start knitting in the round with 2 circs). Seems to solve the problem. More photos/detail here:
