OK....so I ended up ripping out the heel & starting over, because the foot was too long & the heel was too high up.
So, I re-did the heel & I decided to try a different type of heel, one without "wrapped sts that needed to be picked up. To knit the heel: I used Priscilla Wild's method used in

In my opinion, this is such a neat way to work a heel of a Toe-Up sock.
I don't have it down perfect yet, but this is a practice sock.
This the pattern on the back of the sock. Boy......is it ever hard to take a photograph of the back of your own leg. LOL! But, I think that you get the idea.
Like I said before, I'm not crazy about this sock....it feels yucky. So, I will make this a short sock just so I get the practice of the ribbing & the Cast off with EZ's sewn cast off. (please scroll down for EZ sewn cast off).
