Fresh off the needles. I finally tried the Fish Kiss Heel by Sox Therapist.

I love it! The fit is perfect.

I liked it so much that I used this method for the toe as well. I worked the fish kiss on the top (instep) stitches and then used the Kitchener stitch to graft the completed toe to the foot bottom.

As some may recall, my last sock adventure was a foray into an abyss of cut/tied/knotted skeins and variance of yarn weights between skeins, resulting in socks mis-matched in size and striping. The only upside was I found a few delightful new Moscato offerings to sip while I witched.

Always the glutton for punishment, this pair is more of the Ella Rae Seasons yarn, but having learned my lesson, I took one skein, rolled it into two cakes and then knit these two at a time cuff down, magic loop. And they say old dogs can't learn new tricks. Phewy!

Both socks.
Both socks....
Closer look at heel.

I like your socks.

Isn't the Fish Lips Kiss heel great? It is the best fitting of all the heels I have tried this past year.

I am sold on it. So easy and it fits soooo well.

you had me at Moscato! Great pair of socks! Good for you for not giving up - very clever to use FLKH for the toe! It's become my personal favorite heel - so easy you have to try to mess it up! Beautiful yarn too!

Gorgeous socks!!!! I have not made any as of yet. I am not real familiar with the terms you used but I will look on YouTube and learn the heel. Maybe that will give me the courage to try to make a pair.

Thank you for sharing.

Oh I didn't have to go to YouTube I just printed down your directions from Ravelry and I am so happy to have them.

Thank you so much. Now I will study them and try to make a pair as nice as yours.

Those socks are really beautiful. Very well done.

However, I am not having a good time with my first attempt. The heel feels too narrow and has little depth. I can see why the instructions call for another 1" up the leg.

But my biggest problem is the last row where it is supposed to work holelessly with the instep. Not so with mine. Very sloppy looking.

I also had an issue with the width of the heel. It was very narrow and tight to knit.

For those who have done this heel, have you had to add stitches for greater width and/or depth?
