turned the heel

I got a quite a bit of knitting done yesterday on my sock pal's first sock.
I'm still really loving this yarn. Must aquire more seawool! (because you know, I only have enough sock yarn in the stash for a dozen pairs of socks)
I was undecided for the first couple inches, but I now really like the combination of the muted stripes and the vertical lace pattern. I think it adds just enough interest. Hopefully my sock buddy won't think it's too much! These should be really wearable socks too, I love how stretchy the fabric is with the lace being based on a 1x1 ribbing. They should stay put without drooping. (fingers crossed) :)
I've been churning out felted slippers this week too (2 pairs done, 1 to go!) So changing back and forth from size 15 needles to size 0 has been nice on my hands.
