Very nice looking socks, Craig. The heel looks most is it done? -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Your socks look good Craig and finally making your first pair must feel very satisfying.

hat heel? That's a term I haven't run across before

I found the pattern at The pattern is called Hat -heel Sock, but I made some changes and if I were to use this pattern again I would be re-writting it.

Have been knitting for years. I knit continually then will try another craft, but will return to the needles.

Nice job! I'll have to dig around on to have a look at the 'hat-heel' pattern. I hadn't heard of that before. Beautiful job, though. Keep it up!
