An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

Testing the theory
The instructions I read for an 'afterthought' heel said to do 3 or 4 rows after picking up the stitches either side of the waste thread, and then decrease as for the toe. I did that and tried the sock on. I thought the heel looked much too skimpy. So I undid it and knitted 16 rows before decreasing. I wonder if that was the right way to go? Certainly the revamped sock looks rather odd off the foot. The point is, it is easy to experiment with an 'afterthought' heel.
