My first attempt

I’m making my dad some socks for Christmas. I’ve been watching all sorts of videos on how to make a proper heel. Hopefully, I won’t mess it up too badly.

Over Thanksgiving, my aunt told me to add nylon to the heel and toe portion to make sure that those two areas don’t develop a hole. So I went to Rosie’s Yarn Cellar in Philly. Here’s my progress thus far.

Can I tell you how much I love 9″ circular needles! My only other option would be to use DPNs (double pointed needles). I don’t use those unless I have no choice because I usually manage to stab myself with them.
