Sweet Tomato Heel

My knitting time has been shorter this week, probably because I am trying something new and it always takes me more time to read (and reread) the directions.










This the Sweet Tomato Heel.  I saw it on a U-Tube video so I bought the e-book because I like the look of it.  This picture is from the book, mine doesn't look so good, yet.

















 
 
 
 
 
 

This is what my heel looks like.  I just finished it today.  The "wedges" don't show up as clearly as in the above picture but the problem is probably a combination of the darkness of the yarn and my mistakes.  I still have the heel on the second sock so maybe it will look better.
So here is my sock.  I had to take it off the circular needle to do this heel so after I get the second heel done they will go back on the circular and then it will be up the ankles we go.




I have the other pair of socks still on the needles but didn't work on this at all this week.  And I also have a sweater that has been languishing and I need to get back to it.  Maybe next week I will have more to show.   Gari

I like the look of that new heel. Is is harder than the Eye of the Partridge heel? That is the only 'new' one that I've tried and I really like it. I like the color of the yarn you are using too.

How does this heel feel when you put the sock on?

That looks great. I don't do socks cause I have never been able to turn a heel. No matter what pattern I try I cant do heels. I have knitted Icelandic sweaters, you would think I could do a heel, lol...

Looks like you are doing a great job of learning something new.

Great socks. I've seen that heel, but haven't tried it. Soon I'll be knitting again... I hope!
