I have completed my first afterthought heel, although as you can see it was not done after the sock was knit. I didn't want to risk making the sock too short, so I decided to knit the heel after a few inches of the foot.
I also admit I was too impatient to wait, I wanted to see how the heel would fit. I love it! The fit is really comfortable and the sock is a lot easier to put on. I love how the stripes continue on, and even though I know the socks will be fraternal, I still look forward to knitting it.
My new favourite heel I think!
