Short-row socks ala Lucy Neatby

Short-rows ala Lucy

I much prefer working Lucy Neatby's method for short-row heels, although I'll see how the garter stitch heel wears. These are on size 1, metal, using Regia wool. The 1x1 rib started off using the provisional tubular cast-on, which rocks! Very stretchy and quite professional looking. I'm a new fan of this cast-on.

Not sure about these colors, but I had a gift certificate to use (thanks to some very kind ladies) and picked something I wouldn't normally choose (how many pairs of blue socks can one have?). These are short socks but I think they'll wear well with clogs; they even look to me like biking socks!
