L:heart:ve 'em! Have you used the Fleegle heel before? I've decided it will probably be my most used one and am interested in your thoughts.

Fleegle Heel is my fave! Used it here, too:

Okay ladies - what is so good about the Fleegle heel - is if fit, ease of construction, no holes/gaps, padding or something else, tell me, tell me. I'm relatively new to socks (have socks on needles now) and the debate on sock heels seems confusing :?? and ongoing and I just can't seem to get a good handle on each type. I know I'll probably have to knit a pair with each type of heel for myself to work it out but keen to know the pros and cons of each type - no I don't want much do I!

GG: Why do you prefer the Fleegle heel over the Faux heel flap?

Questions - yes I'm full of them and I know who to ask :wink:

Thanks in advance for responses.

What a wonderful addition to your sock wardrobe! Very well done.

It's simple and easy. No wraps to pick up, no funny business.

I haven't noticed glaring holes but, there's this:http://fleeglesblog.blogspot.com/200...r-you.html?m=1

I've done Fleegle heels once and somehow had a block that made me not revisit them. Recently I realized that my pink sox with Fleegle heels are my favorites because of the way they fit and the fact that they show less wear than others even though I tend to wear them most and they're almost through a second winter. Short row heels just don't fit as well for me, don't stay in place, and tend to bind across the top of my foot. I've used short row heels with gussets and they don't bind but don't stay put very well either. Faux heel flaps are actually really cool. I've done several pair with them and will someday play around with making them fit more to my liking. Widdershins adds a little something more to the faux heel flap. It's pretty cool and I think will allow longer wearing for growing feet because of the way the heel turns but for my own sox it wasn't worth the bother. W&T isn't a problem no matter which heel I do, I simply replace it with another method. For me it comes down to fit and how well it wears. I may find out my Fleegle heel is best thus far because it was knit tighter, I did the whole pair of sox on sz. 0 needles. :shrug: That just now occurred to me.

Enjoy your sock adeventure! :knitting:

Read your post Grumpy Grandma about the fleegle heal and then went to the blogspot to see the photos that are posted (link in above posting)....Is this method given for any PATTERN that might be posted somewhere....I admit, I am a bit lost looking at the photos...but maybe because I have only knit 3 pairs of socks...so probably not enough experience. I will read it again and maybe it will sink in. Thanks for the references and information.

Good question. I don't use sock patterns so I had no idea. I had to go look at Ravelry. Searching Fleegle heel turned up this.
