What materials did you use? mystery sock yarn from my stash, probably with cotton or bamboo

What are you most proud of? 'This time I knitted the heel without having to look at the pattern first :)

I noticed in the picture that the back top is higher on the leg than most of what I have seen, I like it. Can you tell me if you added extra rows somewhere on the heel? I am taking the Craftsy class but don't remember seeing anywhere that you can extra rows so the back of the sock goes a bit higher on the leg. I am looking to make Peds (that is what I have always called these), not real socks but any I have seen patterns for are a bit low, in my opinion, at the back of the leg. Any advice you can give me would be appreciated. Love these!

I'm glad you like my socks, thank you (my BFF liked them, too, so they aren't mine any more...). I didn't add any more rows in the back, I only followed the instructions. I completed the heel flap and had barely enough yarn to add some 1 by 1 ribbing.

Thank you Babara62!

Thank you for a great idea! I have some bamboo yarn I didn't know what to do with. So, I will make some summer socks! Also, I have been hesitant about trying the toe up sock and this just looks like a more manageable project. Kath

You're welcome! It's kind of addicting to knit toe-up socks, so be prepared to either dive into your stash or buy new yarn :))
