More Afterthought Heels

(If you're looking for posts about birds, scroll down to the previous posts)

The closest yarn shop is about 5.5h away by car in San Antonio so I am forced to shop at craft or discount stores for yarn. I had planned to buy some online while we were here but we had a real snafu with an Amazon order so I was mail-shy.

I did have big success with Kroy sock yarn purchased locally and these afterthought heel socks so I went out and bought two more colourways of this yarn - neither of which has the same kind of striping.

I'm almost finished the second sock.
I continued the 3 x 1 ribbing down the instep and front of the foot. I used 2.5mm needles on the leg and switched to 2.25mm needles on the foot for more durability.  It may take a bit of adjusting to get the toe of the second sock to match that of the first one. Then I have to decide which colour to do the heels and exactly where I'll insert them in each sock - probably right in the middle of the darker grey stripe below the green stripe.
