I managed to just start the heel flap of one of my socks today. Normally I like to do both heel flaps at the same time. This time around I got lazy and didn’t feel like pulling from both ends of the skein at once so I’m doing them in sequence. I went back and forth about whether to do a contrasting heel or not. Often I am just as happy to keep knitting the heel in the main color, but in this case I wanted to try to preserve the stripes as much as possible. I do wish I had a plain black yarn instead of this silver, but all of my other 80/20 yarn scraps are either rainbows or bright colors that would clash with my stripes. I think it is growing on me, and I do like how the silver and gold look next to each other at the top of the heel.
