Is a stranded sock heel possible? I just finished the charted design on the foot part, but I dont want to have to weave in a bunch of ends later by having to cut off one color while I do the heel.

Should I just keep it simple, or is there a way to continue a pattern somehow on the heel? And if there is, does someone have a simple chart design to follow that they can share?

Have you seen this pattern?

The heel is actually intarsia...some good colorwork technique in there though :D

I actually forgot about that one, but that wouldn't go with my design at all, lol. I'm doing a celtic design and sortof wanted just a stripe pattern or something for the heel - real simple so that I don't get confused in counting with the wrap turns. Thanks so much for sharing :)
