The socks were fun to do and I'd make them again but I will never use a Turkish or afterthought heel. All that painstaking picking up stitches! The nerve-wracking cutting through the waste yarn! Plus, usually when sock knitting you graft the toe and hurrah, sock finished! This way you have to go back and do a lot of tedious fiddling about.
Oh dear, my poor old hands; couldn't really crop them out, though. I'd definitely use this pattern again as it's easy, quick and doesn't use much yarn. What next?
