My Favourite Heel - #7 of 365

I only learned to knit socks two winters ago or rather I finally learned to turn heels then. Here is my foot in the heel turn I use the most. It's from the Bellatrix Stocking which I will eventually knit a pair of. I keep starting the Bellatrix and then I frog what I started as I decide I want the yarn I chose for something else... I really just want a pair of black stockings in this pattern. I am thinking of using a kettle dyed black yarn (kettle dyed has subtle variegation due to the dying process) to get the effect I see in my head.

I finished the first shawl for the 10 in 2010 challenge. It's blocking now.

Of course I had to go check out and snarf up that pattern....the lace is lovely and yes, I like the heels of top down much over toe up.
But with my big clodhoppers....sometimes it's wise to knit toe up!
And I am STILL knitting on the *Scarf From H*LL*...... <:[

When I couldn't get the Watercolor books (put 3 on hold) at the library I grabbed a toe up book. when I finish the anti valentines I will attempt a pair.

Holy Holstein, woman! Your first shawl finished and it's only a week into the year?!?!? It's the BOOKS you're supposed to do 52 in 52 weeks, not the shawls!!!

And to think I was so happy to have finished one mitten today! LOL

I love the Bellatrix heel, too! (but I found it in an old Weldon's) I used a similar one for my catseye socks.

Those colors are nice.

@Celia, Lion Brand Sock yarn. Michael's or Hobby Lobby... 1 skein equals pair of socks with some left over.
