OK, now you're scaring me. What's this about rearranging stitches, 60%? I'm trying Fleegle heels for the first time and think I have about 4 rounds left before I start the short rows. Now I'm wondering what I've missed. The instructions I found say to increase on the heel side to 2 less stitches than the total number before starting increasing...or that's what I remember and have been doing. I'm afraid to look at the pattern now. Of course, I don't know what heel you are doing either. *put panic on hold!*

I feel for you having to frog, it took several starts for me to get my "pink sock kind of day" socks going. Even gurus are allowed learning experiences.

Don't panic. I'm doing the Sweet Tomato Heel, which calls for 2/3 of the stitches to be used for the heel, and the other 1/3 for the instep. So if you start out with the sts evenly divided 50/50 between instep and sole, you have to rearrange them on the needles for this particular heel.

I've never done a Fleegle heel nor even read the directions. So if your instructions say nothing about dividing the sts differently, then you're fine. I didn't mean to alarm anyone.

There are so many heel constructions, and they all require different things.

LOL now I remember, you said you were doing the sweet tomato heel. I'm glad I put my panic on hold, I'll leave it there for a while. I wasn't all that alarmed, just reaction, then breathe, don't panic.
With this heel you increase then work short rows then go back to working in the round. I've not looked at the sweet tomato heel for a long time but expect in some ways it's similar. I think I might like the way I did heels before better but I'm not done yet so the jury is still out.
Thanks for keeping us updated on your own sock adventure. I hope getting the stitches back on the needles isn't too harrowing. Fine yarn and skinny needles make that difficult for me.

Nope, getting the sts back on the needles wasn't hard at all. As long as you're gentle with the fabric and don't go tugging on it, the loops will be there.

Hey, would you like to post a pic of the socks you're working on? We're almost doing a sock KAL.

I'll see if I can get a picture and get it online. My only camera is in my phone. Sometimes they don't upload well, if I even get a decent pic.

How are yours coming along, Jan? Which heel are you doing? One pair at a time is enough for me! Do we get to see yours?

Jan, I'm glad. I'll get to see what it should look like! I'm working the first one for the second time, I messed up and had to redo it. I'm not sure where I messed up but my count was off and it didn't work right.

Be careful what you ask for, you just might get it
Here, by request! I managed to get some photos and upload them. Here in all their glory are my WIP socks, and I just had to see if the one I got the heel turned on will fit. It does. Surprise, surprise....not! Liat Gat told me how to decide when to start the increases. I've not been able to keep even tension but I hope some of that will even out. My feet won't mind much. Warm sox is warm sox. Thanks for asking, Carol. It's such a pain to do pics with my phone and upload them that I rarely bother. It doesn't always work, today it did.
