Pattern: Slinky Socks by Rae Blackledge
Yarn: Trekking XXL color #134
Mods: Just one, the instructions call for you to turn the knitting to the inside so you can knit every row. I didn't want to fiddle with turning the knitting so I decided to simply purl alternating rows of 6. Starting with 10 rows purled, then knit 6 rows, and purl 6 rows till you have 7 slinky sections. Not a major change, but it worked out for me. Since I had knit a hat this winter using a similar technique, I got it right away.
This was my first afterthought heel. I can see how it would work with certain yarn color patterns, but normally I would prefer my usual heels, less ends to weave.
