Finally finished Queen Kahuna, Crazy Toe and Heel Socks. I love the way they look. I wanted the heel to be red as well, but wasnt sure when to change the color. I used Bernat Sox Yarn, which I really like working with, but it is now discontinued. wah wah A few sites still sale it (www.herrschners.com). I used a US 2 (Addis) needles to knit these babies up. I'm so proud of my accomplishments. Took me forever and a day to get them done, but well work knitting each and every stitch. I really made a mess of the pattern on the leg og the sock (the white portion) . The lace rib pattern from Sensational Knitted Socks, on page 44. The next go around I will only knit when I can focus using a pattern. :-)

Your socks are great!!!

You would start the color change for the heel were the heel flap starts for top down, or I start it right when you begin to "urn the heel" on toe-up socks and end about four rows from the end of the heel flap so the different color does not show out of the shoe.... mab...aka... Queen Kahunna
