There’s always the sock puppet option
Last night I turned the heel of my sock.
The first pair of socks I knit had a heel flap and some other crap I don’t remember. This time I looked at a couple patterns, and then I looked at my sock, and I kind of went for it. The whole thing works if you don’t look too closely.
And don’t tell me that looks great. I can take flattering photos. The important thing is that it looks heelish, and also that I’m pretty sure I can fix the holes. If not, well . . .
Don’t think I wouldn’t do it, Monsieur Sock.
